Items and Services Not Covered Under Medicare

This publication provides information on the four categories of items and services not covered under Medicare and applicable exceptions (items and services that may be covered). The discussion is not intended to provide an all-inclusive list of all items and services Medicare may or may not cover. Please note: Any item or service furnished directly or indirectly by an individual or entity excluded by the Office of Inspector General from participating in all Federal health care programs is a non-covered item or service pursuant to Section 1862(e) of the Social Security Act.
