"New" Medicare Wellness Exam

posted Feb 5, 2011, 5:53 AM by peter ramirez

Yearly “Wellness” exam

If you’ve had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get a yearly wellness visit to develop or update a prevention plan just for you, based on your current health and risk factors. Medicare does not cover this exam before January 1, 2011. Starting January 1, 2011, you’ll pay nothing for this exam if the doctor accepts assignment. This exam is covered once every 12 months.

You don’t need to get the “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam before getting a yearly “Wellness” exam, but if you do choose to get the “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam, you’ll have to wait 12 months before you can get your first yearly “Wellness” exam.
 
Please tell office staff is scheduling yearly medicare wellness exam. this exam is intended to review all general health and screening issues and should be seperate from a "sick/problem" visit so doctor can focus on the "plan"
