62Q.50 Prostate cancer screening.

A health plan must cover prostate cancer screening for men 40 years of age or over who are symptomatic or in a high-risk category and for all men 50 years of age or older.

The screening must consist at a minimum of a prostate-specific antigen blood test and a digital rectal examination.

This coverage is subject to any deductible, coinsurance, co-payment, or other limitation on coverage applicable to other coverages under the plan.

For purposes of this section, "health plan" includes coverage that is excluded under section 62A.011, subdivision 3, clauses (7) and (10).
