If you’ve had Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) for longer than 12 months, you can get a yearly “Wellness” visit once every 12 months to develop or update a personalized prevention plan to help prevent disease and disability, based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider may also perform a cognitive impairment assessment.
You pay nothing for this visit if your doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts assignment. The Part B deductible doesn’t apply. However, you may have to pay coinsurance, and the Part B deductible may apply if:
-Your doctor or other health care provider performs additional tests or services during the same visit.
-These additional tests or services aren't covered under the preventive benefits.
Examples of covered Wellness screenings Include-
Bone Density Screenings
