Annual Wellness or Preventive Medicine Visits: Why it is important
When it comes to your health, you hear about eating a balanced diet, getting plenty of exercise, etc.
But do you remember to see your doctor each year?
Original Medicare covers annual wellness exams at no cost, as well as other preventive screenings.
An annual wellness or preventive medicine visit is a great time to develop a strategy with your doctor to maintain or improve your health.
If you have not had an annual wellness or preventive medicine visit in the last 12 months, talk to your doctor's office about scheduling this important
service focused on your health. Be sure to let them know the appointment is for a Medicare annual wellness or preventive visit. This will allow them to
ensure there is enough time set aside for your appointment.
Even if you are healthy, it is a good idea to have an annual wellness or preventive medicine visit at your doctor's office. Make an appointment today!
