Have You Scheduled Your Annual Wellness Visit?

As part of your Medicare Benefits, Medicare covers an “Annual Wellness Visit” to your primary care physician (PCP). This visit is not the same thing as your Annual Physical Exam.

First of all, there’s no copay. Secondly, its goal is to help your doctor better understand your medical history as well as your potential risk factors for illness. To see the difference between your annual wellness visit and your annual physical, look at the chart below.

“It’s important that you schedule an Annual Medicare Wellness Visit in addition to your Annual Physical Exam.”

Contact your primary care physician and make your Annual Medicare Wellness Visit appointment today. If you have questions, call Member Services at 1 866-568-4472.
