An annual wellness visit is one of the most important things you can do for your health. And if you’ve had Medicare Part B for longer than 12 months, you are eligible to receive an annual wellness visit at no cost to you.
Are you new to Medicare? Then you are eligible for a one-time, preventive wellness visit within the first 12 months that you have Part B. Click here for details.
You and your doctor can discuss your medical history, review your current health and medications, and get routine measurements such as blood pressure and height. This will guide your doctor in working with you to help prevent disease and improve your health.
