In brief: Yes

If medcally necessary and documentation is adequate, medicare will cover this.
There may be co-payments and other costs associated from or, hospital, pt, radiology, etc. Knee replacement surgeons are having to now spend more time with insurance companies documenting and justifying surgeries.
