Medicare Annual Wellness visit

Man fishingHow it works
If you’ve had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get a yearly wellness visit to develop or update a personalized plan to prevent disease based on your current health and risk factors. This is not a physical visit. Medicare covers one wellness visit every 12 months.

Eligibility requirements
All people with Medicare. If you got the Welcome to Medicare preventive visit, you have to wait 12 months before you can get your first yearly wellness visit. You don’t need to have a Welcome to Medicare visit before your yearly wellness visit.

Cost
You pay nothing for the yearly wellness visit. If you get additional tests or services during the same visit that aren’t covered under these preventive benefits, you may have to pay coinsurance, and the Part B deductible may apply.

Getting started
Call your clinic.
