MRI to screen silicone implants for rupture covered by Medicare?

After having saline implants for 29 years after my first reconstruction, I am thinking of getting silicone this time. A big concern is that by the time I need the recommended screening MRI I will be on Medicare. I haven't been able to find a definitive answer whether this would be covered. Has anyone had an implant screening MRI approved by Medicare? This going to be a huge factor in deciding which way I go. TIA for your help!
