Annual Wellness Visit

Annual Wellness Visits are Important

Getting regular annual check-ups is the best way to stay on top of your health.

Knowing where your health stands and getting recommended exams will not only give you peace of mind, but will also help detect problems early, when they’re easiest to treat.

It may be time for an annual wellness exam

Getting a yearly wellness exam is important so you can be the healthiest and happiest version of yourself. It’s also a great time to bring a list of questions and share any health-related concerns with your doctor.

What can I expect during a wellness visit?

  • A review of your medical and family history
  • Height, weight, blood pressure and other routine measurements
  • Recommendation of preventive screenings, care plans or treatment options
  • Updating a list of current providers and medications
  • Detection of any cognitive impairment

Annual wellness exams are covered by Medicare. Call your health plan or Medicare directly to verify your coverage.
