Medicare Wellness Visits
Welcome To Medicare Visit: Only available within your first twelve months as a Medicare patient. We will review your medical, social, and family histories; your medications and allergies; and your potential need for health screenings, immunizations and referrals for additional care. You will get a summary of the visit to take home with you.
First Annual Wellness Visit: Can be scheduled once you have been on Medicare for at least one year or more. A prior "Welcome to Medicare " visit is NOT required. We will establish a personalized preventive plan based on your current health and risk factors. This visit is similar to the "Welcome To Medicare" visit. The only examination required by Medicare is to measure your height, weight, blood pressure and BMI (body mass index).
Subsequent Annual Wellness Visit: Can be scheduled yearly, but at least 12 months after your last "Annual Wellness" visit.
These are NOT traditional "complete physical exams" and NOT a time to address chronic health conditions such as diabetes, or to discuss acute/new illnesses. If you want to address additional concerns at these visits, Medicare does then require an added charge to you the patient.
Forms needed for your Medicare Visit
