What Is a Medicare Annual Wellness Check?
The Annual Wellness Check is a yearly primary care visit that applies to individuals who have been covered by Medicare Part B for at least a year. The exam includes an assessment of your general wellness, along with developing a personalized plan for disease prevention. The Annual Wellness Check is different from a routine physical, as it focuses more on screening for diseases than a head-to-toe exam. Typically, the visit is fully covered by Medicare once every 12 months. The experienced family physicians at Lawrence Family Practice Center provide Medicare exams at our office in Lawrence, KS. Please get in touch with our team to schedule an appointment. We offer a comfortable, family-centered environment where patients of all backgrounds are welcome.
