Is it possible to receive stem cell therapy under medicare to treat cancers?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Usually...: As long as it is an approved treatment for the disease. There may be some restrictions, for example if you have multiple myeloma but your kidney function is impaired beyond a certain point you will be denied coverage by medicare. If kidney function was normal the same person would be approved.
