Medicare Well Visits
A Medicare well visit is an opportunity for patients to sit down with a nurse or nurse practioner to look your care as a whole. We make sure your chart is up to date and make a plan for screenings and preventative care for the coming year. Medicare participants do not pay for this yearly visit.
A wellness visit will include the following:
- Review of medical and family history
- Review of current medications and other providers care
- Check height, weight, and blood pressure
- Review preventative and screening services to get you up to date (vaccinations, colonoscopy, mammogram, bone density, etc.)
Examination by a physician is not included in the Annual Wellness Visit. Medications are not prescribed at these visits, which must be obtained at regularly scheduled appointments.
