During the COVID-19 pandemic, Medicare allows annual wellness visits to be conducted by video. Scheduling a Video Visit for your annual wellness visit is a great way to check in on your health from the comfort and safety of your home.
A free Annual Wellness Visit is one of the benefits of having a Medicare Advantage plan. This visit is different than a routine physical – it's a chance for you and your doctor to discuss physical and emotional changes unique to aging.
During an annual wellness visit, you can bring up health concerns and ask questions, and your doctor can evaluate you to get a better picture of your overall health. It's also a time for your physician to go over your care plan for any chronic conditions, such as diabetes or a heart condition. If you are experiencing issues such as memory loss, balance problems, depression or any other physical or mental limitation, this visit gives your doctor a chance to create a care plan and suggest additional support options.
Stay on top of your health by calling your doctor's office today and scheduling your appointment, either in person or via video. If you are a Medicare Advantage member, you may receive a call from one of our Health Navigators to help you schedule your annual wellness visit with your doctor.
