Happy New Year from Medicare! Get a healthy start to the year by seeing your doctor for your Medicare yearly wellness visit. It’s covered if you’ve had Medicare Part B for longer than 12 months.

Use this visit to develop or update your personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy all year long. This wellness visit is covered once every 12 months.

Looking for another way to stay on top of your health? If you have Original Medicare (Part A and/or Part B), sign in to your MyMedicare.gov accountto see a personalized calendar of current and upcoming preventive services. If you don’t already have a MyMedicare account, it’s free – and easy – to sign up. Visit MyMedicare.gov to get started.

If you’re in a Medicare Advantage (MA) Plan, contact your plan for a list of covered preventive services. MA Plans must cover all the same preventive services as Original Medicare, and some may offer additional services.

Here’s to your health!
