About Medicare Wellness Annual Exams at Tri-County Medical Clinic
The purpose of the annual wellness visit under Medicare is for our family geriatric physicians to get a clear assessment of your current state of health and to design a plan for future care. These visits serve as health care assessments for patients with Medicare age 65 and older to create an individualized prevention plan in order to assist patients in disability and disease prevention, based on the current health and risk factors. During the visit, measurements such as weight, height, BMI, and blood pressure will be taken, among with a review of the patient’s medical and family history, review of current medications and recommended adjustments, cognitive impairment evaluation if needed, and recommendations for preventative screenings and diagnostic testing. As Medicare does not offer coverage for annual physicals, we strongly recommend taking advantage and utilizing the fully covered Medicare Annual Wellness Exam.
