My primary care physician informed me that Lung Cancer Screening is covered. All health insurance must pay for the fee. Is that true?
Yes. Cancer screenings are considered a preventive service by the Affordable Care Act and preventive services are one of ObamaCare's Minimum Essential Benefits. This means that all ACA-compliant health plans have to cover lung cancer screenings and, in most cases, this service must be offered at no out-of-pocket costs. That being said, other services associated with the screening itself may be covered under the plans cost sharing amounts (and that can include out-of-pocket costs).
