Welcome to Medicare Visit

Did you know you may be entitled to a comprehensive preventative health visit under Medicare. To qualify you must have the visit within 12 months of medicare enrollment. Best of all, there is no deductible. You may be responsible for the standard visit copay.

The visit will include review of medical conditions, screening questions related to safety and depression, end of life care discussion and recommendations for screening test including an EKG. There may also be recommendations for bone density, gyn consult, mammogram and screening for aortic aneurysm and colon cancer.

If you want to take advantage of this service, make sure you tell your provider that you want a "Welcome to Medicare Visit" when you make an appointment. Make sure you bring a list of your medication and vaccination history.
