Medicare annual wellness visits are designed to help prevent disease and disability based on one’s current health and risk factors. Those enrolled in Medicare for more than one year may be eligible for a medical annual wellness visit at no cost. These visits include a medical and family history review, developing or updating a list of current providers and prescriptions, detection of any cognitive impairments and advance care planning.
WOW!
