Medicare Annual Wellness Visits

At your Medicare Annual Wellness visit, your provider works with you to develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out Medicare coverage.

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.
