AAA Screening for Early Detection and Treatment of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm

CALL 888-928-7475

Stroke & Vascular Screening Saves Lives

Approximately 200,000 new cases of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA) will be diagnosed this year!1

What you should know about AAA:

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) can be treated successfully if diagnosed early, but left untreated the aneurysm could rupture causing sudden death– over 60% of those with a ruptured aneurysm will die. Often times, AAAs have no symptoms. Risk factors for developing an aneurysm include family history, smoking, heart disease, and high blood pressure. If you are at risk for an aneurysm, your doctor may recommend periodic screening.

    Do you qualify for a free AAA screening?
    Eligible beneficiaries are individuals who have not previously received a AAA evaluation through Medicare, and meet at least one of the following risk categories:

      • Anyone with a family history of an abdominal aortic aneurysm
      • Men (65 to 75 years old) who have smoked at least 100 cigarettes

        If I don't qualify can I still get tested?

        The simple answer is yes! However, you will need to discuss your history with your doctor to determine if your insurance will cover the cost of testing.

        What is a AAA test?
        The diagnostic test for AAA is painless and non-invasive, posing no risk to the patient. The process typically takes 30 minutes, but you should allow up to an hour to complete.

        Talk to your doctor about your risk for AAA and if you would benefit from a AAA screening.
