Medicare Patients' Annual Wellness Visit
As of January 1, 2011 the Affordable Care Act provides for an Annual Wellness Visit for eligible Medicare patients.
If you are on Medicare and no longer within 12 months after the effective date of your first Part B coverage period and have not received an inital preventive physical exam or annual wellness visit within the past 12 months, you are eligible for a Annual Wellness Visit.
Wellness visits promote health through providing for early disease detection and helping to coordinate health screenings and preventive care services.
