Medicare Annual Wellness Q & A

What is Medicare annual wellness?

Annual wellness visits are routine exams with your provider at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC that focus on disease and disability prevention in patients entitled to Medicare health insurance or Medicare Part B.

Medicare health insurance covers people aged 65 and over or younger people with kidney failure or a significant disability. Medicare Part B assists with the cost of outpatient care, health provider visits, and some preventive medicine services.

If you’ve been on Medicare Part B for 12 months or more, you’re eligible for a free annual wellness visit.

How do I get started with Medicare wellness visits?

Your first visit is an introduction to Medicare and a thorough evaluation. Before your Medicare visit, the Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC team asks you to complete a health risk assessment questionnaire. They review the information you provide and your medical and family history.

Your provider also checks your medications and records your height, weight, and blood pressure. They check your heart rate and breathing, look at how mobile you are, and assess you for any signs of dementia.

If you need any immunization boosters, your provider can give you those and arrange other preventive health measures like cancer, diabetes, and cholesterol screening.

Following the initial exam, your provider at Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC prepares a wellness program for you. This personalized plan covers everything from weight loss and dietary changes to increasing your activity levels and addressing issues like smoking and alcohol consumption.

What happens at my Medicare annual wellness visit?

Each year after your initial exam, you visit Cookeville Medical Clinic RHC for your annual wellness visit. Your provider reviews your health care plan with you and amends it to reflect any changes. They check you over to ensure your blood pressure, breathing, and heart rate are healthy.

A Medicare annual wellness visit focuses on prevention and education to help you stay healthy in later life. It doesn’t include the lab testing you would get at an annual physical or any diagnostic imaging procedures. If your provider thinks you’d benefit from further tests or a more in-depth exam, they’ll advise you during your wellness visit.
