Medicare Wellness Q & A

What is a Medicare wellness visit?

This yearly visit to Wellspring Family Medicine is an opportunity to meet with your health care provider on a regular basis so they can assess your physical and cognitive wellness. This preventive care is critical to your long-term health and vitality. 

With a yearly visit to their office for your Medicare wellness visit, you give the Wellspring Family Medicine health care providers the opportunity to develop a personalized screening schedule for any conditions for which you might be at risk. And catching the vast majority of health conditions early means treatment will be both more effective and less invasive. 

Does Medicare cover the cost of this doctor’s visit?

Yes. If you have Medicare Part B, the entire wellness visit is covered by your insurance. You don’t even have to pay your deductible. 

You may need to pay coinsurance. If you want to know if you would have anything due after a Wellness Family Medicine visit, call the office. Their dedicated team can let you know exactly what to expect in terms of your annual wellness visit costs. 

What should I expect during a Medicare wellness visit?

During your appointment, the Wellspring Family Medicine team works with you to get a thorough overview of your current health. You’ll fill out a health risk assessment during your visit, talk about your personal and family health history, and discuss any symptoms you’ve been experiencing. To prepare for your appointment, bring:

  • Immunization records
  • A record of all medications (including supplements) you’re taking and your dosage
  • Information about your family health history
  • A list of your health care providers and specialists

Once they’re up to date on your health, the Wellspring Family Medicine team creates or updates a personalized care plan for you. This plan guides you toward your healthiest life. They provide you with a copy of your plan that you can take home to look over yourself and to share with your other health care providers. 

Your personalized care plan might include lifestyle changes you can make to alleviate symptoms you’re experiencing, the introduction of new medications to manage chronic conditions, or steps you can take toward your wellness goals. 

At the end of your Medical wellness visit, you can rest easy knowing you’ve been thoroughly checked for any health risks. And you’ll walk out educated about what you can do to protect your health.
