Free Doctor Visit Annually



Are you taking advantage of your Free Annual Wellness Visit? If not, why not? One item you can discuss with your doctor on this visit is your end-of-life initiatives, such as Medical Power of Attorney, Advanced Directives, Living Will, and HIPPA Release. Here is some info on Medicare Plan B's program:

Yearly "Wellness" visits: If you've had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get this visit to develop or update a personalized prevention help plan to prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider 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 provider develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit. It also includes:

  • A review of your medical and family history

  • Developing or updating a list of current providers and prescriptions

  • Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements

  • Detection of any cognitive impairment

  • Personalized health advice

  • A list of risk factors and treatment options for you

  • A screening schedule (like a checklist) for appropriate preventive services. Get details about coverage for screenings, shots, and other preventive services.
