Medicare has a benefit called the Annual Wellness Visit that will help you make a plan with your healthcare team for how to stay healthy. This is a free, yearly visit where you will talk with your healthcare provider about your medical history, risk for certain diseases, the current state of your health, and create a personalized prevention plan.
Your healthcare provider might refer you for screenings or services outside of the appointment.
This is not the same as a yearly physical exam. Your healthcare provider will not listen to your heart and lungs or check other parts of your body. You will probably not have blood tests during this visit.
You can get your first Annual Wellness Visit after you have been enrolled in Medicare for 12 months. After your first Wellness Visit, you can get a follow up Wellness Visit every 12 months.
When you call your doctor’s office, tell them that you would like to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit. They will help you to plan for the visit. They may send you a form about your health to fill out and bring to your appointment.
