A WORD TO OUR PATIENTS ABOUT MEDICARE AND WELLNESS CARE 

As your family physicians we want you to receive wellness care – health care that may lower your risk of illness or injury.  Medicare covers some preventative services and wellness care.  A “New to Medicare” visit (a complete exam and some other testing done in the first year of Medicare eligibility) and “Annual Wellness Visits” (which are more limited evaluations done yearly thereafter.)

The term “physical” is often used to describe wellness care.  But Medicare does not pay for a traditional, head-to-toe physical.  Medicare does pay for an “annual wellness visit” once a year to identify health risks and help you to reduce them.  At your wellness visit, our health care team will take a complete health history and provide several other services:

Screenings to detect depression, risk for falling and other problems,

A limited physical exam to check your blood pressure, weight, vision and other things depending on your age, gender, and level of activity,

Recommendations for other wellness services and healthy lifestyle changes.

Before your appointment, our staff will ask you some questions about your health and may ask you to fill out a form.

The annual wellness visit does not deal with new or existing health problems.  That would be a separate service and requires a longer appointment.  Please let our scheduling staff know if you need the doctor’s help with a health problem, a medication refill or something else. We may need to schedule a separate appointment.  A separate charge applies to these services, whether provided on the same date or a different date than the wellness visit.

We are here to help hope you get the most from your Medicare wellness benefits.  Please contact us with any questions.
