Will Medicare cover hip replacement surgery at age 75?
- 2310 POINTSContact Meview profileSteve AdlmanPROOwner, Alabama Medicare Plans, Birmingham, AlabamaIf It is medically necessary Medicare will pay for hip replacement surgery at age 75. Age is not the determining factor but whether or not the surgery is medically necessary. Hopefully, your doctor would not want you to go through this type of surgery if it wasn't medically necessary.Answered on October 11, 2017+01 0+1 this answerflag this answerview more answers by Steve Adlman

Medicare part B covers outpatient surgery, doctor visits, post-operative physical therapy, and durable medical equipment but only pays 80%. A Medicare supplement can cover the 20% and a medicare advantage plan could have fixed costs instead of the 20% as well as a maximum out of pocket limit (MOOP).Answered on December 11, 2019+01 0+1 this answerflag this answerview more answers by Walker Bolin
