Medicare Wellness Exams
The Medicare wellness exam is an annual physical that aims to develop or update your personalized health prevention plan. During the physical, your provider focuses on your current health and disease risk factors.
He may also conduct a cognitive impairment assessment to look for signs of Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
An annual physical is a comprehensive evaluation of your overall health and wellness. The specifics of your annual physical depend on your age, health concerns, and medical history. Annual physicals are available for all ages, including infants, children, teens, and adults.
