About This Show
How much would you pay out-of-pocket for a five day hospital stay on Medicare? The majority of people have no idea!
The problem with Medicare is there is too much information. An overwhelming amount of information and not enough resources. Medicare Nation solves that problem by educating you about all the things you want to know about Medicare, but are afraid to ask. This podcast will educate you about the components of Medicare, the different categories of Medicare Plans and Medicare benefits. On other episodes I’ll interview expert guests in the health and wellness field, about diseases, Medicare issues and current changes to the Medicare program.
Medicare Nation is dedicated to answering all your questions about Medicare.
Expert information and insights regarding Medicare and you!

MN066 Welcome To Medicare Visit vs. Annual Wellness Visit
5 days ago
What is the Difference Between a Welcome to Medicare Visit vs. an Annual Wellness Visit? A "Welcome to Medicare" preventive visit: Is an introductory visit only within the first 12 months you have Medicare Part B. This visit includes a review of your medical and social history with your Primary Physician, as well as possibly including preventive services, including: Certain screenings, shots, and referrals for other care, if needed Height, weight, and blood pressure measurements A calculation of your body mass index A simple vision test A review of your potential risk for depression and your level of safety An offer to talk with you about creating "Advanced Directives" A written plan letting you know which screenings, shots, and other preventive services you need. This visit is covered one time. You don’t need to have this visit as a "prerequisite," to be covered for yearly "Wellness" visits. Annual "Wellness" visits: If you've had Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get this visit to develop or update a personalized prevention help plan. This plan is designed to help prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider will ask you to fill out a questionnaire, called a “Health Risk Assessment,” as part of this visit. Answering these questions can help you and your provider develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit. It can also include: A review of your medical and family history Developing or updating a list of current providers and prescriptions Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements Detection of any cognitive impairment Personalized health advice A list of risk factors and treatment options for you A screening schedule (like a checklist) for appropriate preventive services. This visit is covered once every 12 months (11 full months must have passed since the last visit). Who's eligible? All
