The "Welcome to Medicare" physical exam helps you and your doctor develop a personalized plan to prevent disease, improve your health, and help you stay well. A few things you should know:
It’s Free. There is no copayment or deductible for the exam.
Call Park Hill Family Practice when you sign up for Medicare.
You can get the exam during the first 12 months you have Medicare. After the first year, you can get a yearly "Wellness" exam for free.
It is comprehensive. It includes a review of your medical history; preventative test and screenings; and planning for a healthy future.
The exam is covered by Original Medicare (Part B) and Medicare Advantage Plans. Under the new Healthcare law, the exam is now free to those with Original Medicare, and to most people with Medicare Advantage Plans, along with a number of preventative screenings and services (like mammograms and colonoscopies).
