What to Expect During Your Visit
Wellness visits usually last between 30 and 60 minutes, with your height, weight, blood pressure, and cognitive abilities being screened by your physician. In addition, you and your provider will discuss the medical history of you and your family, along with any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
During your visit, your provider will review the importance of disease prevention and early detection, and how certain lifestyle changes may help you live a longer, healthier life. Together, you and your health care provider will develop a Personalized Prevention Plan in order to achieve your healthy living goals.
Your Medicare wellness visit is different than a routine physical exam. If needed, your health care provider may recommend a physical as part of your Personalized Prevention Plan.
