Monitor your bone strength
An osteoporosis screening may be covered under your health plan at $0 out-of-pocket. Severe bone mineral loss, or osteoporosis, leads to more fragile bones and increases the risk of fractures from falls and minor bumps—especially as you age. If found early, you and your doctor can explore treatments to keep your condition from worsening and take steps to prevent fractures.
About your osteoporosis screening
A small, lightweight ultrasound scanner will be used to determine the density of your bones. The noninvasive scan of your wrist can help monitor your bone health over time.
