Medicare pays for 2 wellness visits; a one-time Welcome to Medicare visit and an annual wellness visit. Medicare does not pay for an annual general physical exam.
What is the difference between a Welcome to Medicare visit versus an annual 医疗健康 visit?
There are slight differences between the Initial Welcome to Medicare visit and the subsequent Annual 医疗健康. 两次检查都包括对您健康风险的评估.
In the first 12 months of enrollment, you will have a one time Welcome to Medicare visit. Afterwards, you will have a subsequent Annual 医疗健康 visit.
During the visit to your provider, your general medical history will be recorded. Your height, weight, and blood pressure will be checked. 你的身体质量指数也会被计算出来. You will receive a simple vision exam and probably a simple hearing exam. Depending on your general health or medical history, further testing may be done or ordered. 在参观结束时, you will receive a written recommendation pertaining to your health risk.
It is recommended that you bring all your medications including over-the-counter medications, a list of your previous medical and surgical history (hospitalizations), 接种疫苗的清单, and a list of preventive testing that you have done in the past. If you have an advanced directive or living will, please bring those with you to your visit.
Do I need to have a Welcome to Medicare visit before an Annual Wellness visit?
Is there a deductible or co-pay for the 医疗健康 Visit?
不，这两种都没有免赔额或自付额. Most of the recommended testing and referrals are done with no deductible as well. Keeping in mind that if certain risk factors were identified, further testing or referral might have a deductible (20%) applied.
No. As long as you have Medicare part B, there will be no age limitations. Whether you are young or are advanced age (>80 yo)
Will I have out-of-pocket cost for preventive tests such as mammograms or colonoscopies?
Medicare determines which preventive or 筛选 tests are covered and when they should take place. There will be no co-pay or deductible required for these exams. A 筛选 test is given to those who have no symptoms of a condition such as measuring cholesterol levels. A 诊断 test is used to confirm a suspected condition once initial testing has revealed its possibility. Medicare does cover a diabetic 筛选 as well as cholesterol 筛选 with no deductible.
答案通常是肯定的. Please call your Medicare Advantage representative to discuss this prior to visiting with the provider. 他们会确认或否认资格.
