Medicare and most major insurances have the new free benefit called the ANNUAL WELLNESS VISIT that will help you make a plan with your healthcare team for how to stay healthy.
What is the annual wellness visit?
This visit is for talking with your healthcare team about your medical history, your risk for certain diseases, the current state of your health and your plan for staying healthy.
- Your healthcare team will measure your height, weight and blood pressure.
- Your healthcare team might refer you for screenings or services outside of the appointment.
Who pays for it?
Medicare will pay for the Annual Wellness Visit.
- Medicare will pay for most screening services you need.
- You might have to pay a copayment for some screening services and follow up visits. You may also have a copayment if you and your healthcare team decide you need to spend a lot of time talking about a current health problem that you have rather than about how to keep you healthy.
