Seniors: Here’s how to make a plan to check up and maintain your health
Preventative care is an important part of staying healthy. Seniors on Medicare have a covered benefit each year to stay on top of their health.
“Medicare wellness visits are an important way for doctors to work with seniors to set a plan for the year, as well as schedule important tests and screenings,” says Dr. Rick Bone, senior medical director of population health for Advocate Aurora Health’s Medical Group.
Here’s what you can expect.
It’s important to check your Medicare plan to confirm details of coverage. You might have a copayment for additional services during the visit and for follow-up visits.
You can schedule this visit with your primary care doctor’s office or call us at 331.200.7586 in Illinois or 414.441.9664 in Wisconsin to reserve your spot today.
