CMS considers Medicare coverage of depression screenings

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is considering covering an annual screening for depression for Medicare enrollees, according to a decision memo. CMS believes there is enough evidence to conclude that screening for depression in adults is reasonable and can lead to the early prevention of illness and disability. Both enrollees in Part A and Part B would be covered.
