About Medicare Annual Wellness Visits
If you’ve had Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) for longer than 12 months, you can get a yearly “Wellness” visit once every 12 months to develop or update a personalized prevention plan. You pay nothing for for the basic visit. The Part B deductible doesn’t apply.
You may, however, have to pay coinsurance, and the Part B deductible may apply if:
- Your provider performs additional tests or services during the same visit.
- These additional tests or services aren’t covered under the preventive benefits.
