Medicare Wellness Visits
St. John Clinic can help you live a healthier, happier life with annual Medicare Wellness Visits.
Many people only visit their doctor for an annual checkup or when they feel sick. Through a Medicare Wellness Visit, you can partner with your healthcare team to learn more about how to live a healthier, happier life.
What is a Medicare Wellness Visit?
A Wellness Visit is not a checkup. While both are important, a Wellness Visit is a chance to spend time with your doctor and his/her team to plan for your future health needs. Our goal is to create a plan just for you – to help you avoid or reduce the effects of conditions like diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. At your Medicare Wellness Visit, our health team will take your complete health history and provide other services listed below:
- Screening to check for depression, risk for falling, and other problems
- A limited physical exam to check your blood pressure, weight, vision, and more depending on your age, gender, and level of activity
- Review Medicare-covered preventative and wellness services that apply to you
- You may need to schedule other wellness services and health lifestyle changes if necessary
To schedule your Wellness Visit, please contact your provider.
