Ask your healthcare provider when you should have a bone density test

NATIONAL OSTEOPOROSIS FOUNDATION
Michael Lewiecki, MD, FACP, FACE posted:
If you are a postmenopausal woman or man age 50 or older, be sure to ask your healthcare provider when you should have a bone density test. If you're a woman age 65 or older or a man age 70 or older and have never had a bone density test, you should have one regardless of risk factors. Medicare insurance will often pay for this test every two years and sometimes more frequently depending on your medical condition.
