The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit is a service for Medicare enrollees. It screens for a number of common conditions. And gives you education and counseling to help keep you healthy.
If you've had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get this free visit. This plan is designed to help prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors.
Your doctor will ask you to fill out a questionnaire, called a “Health Risk Assessment,” as part of this visit.
Answering these questions can help you and your doctor come up with a plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit. This visit is covered once every 12 months. At your wellness visit, our health care team will:
Screen for depression, risk for falling and other problems.
Check your blood pressure, weight, vision and other vitals.
Recommend wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes.
Answer any questions you may have about health concerns.
