Medicare Covered Alternatives to Knee Replacement, Cortisone, and Pain Meds
Trying to find Medicare covered alternatives for treating knee replacements or cortisone injections can be daunting. Never mind whether they actually work or not, but will Medicare actually cover them?
Medicare covers certain treatments that can help joint problems. There are 3 different Medicare covered alternatives that do seem to work for most people when it comes to knee problems. So before having your knee replaced, stabbed with a bunch of injections or down a boatload of pain meds, you should consider these options.
- Tear/Torn Meniscus
- Tear/Torn Tendons
- Rotator Cuffs

Replacement surgery does have significant risks, painful/challenging rehabilitation, and only lasts 10 to 15 years.
