What is an annual wellness visit?

 

Your first visit to your OptumCare® Medical Group doctor after you join Medicare may be your “Welcome to Medicare” visit. During this Medicare annual wellness visit, your doctor will review your medical history and discuss preventive services like annual screenings.

Your doctor will also:

  • Do a blood screening
  • Review your medications
  • Perform other routine screenings

We will remind you each year to schedule your annual wellness visit. Together, you and your doctor will create a plan to keep you healthy.


You qualify for an annual wellness visit if:

  • You’ve had Medicare Part B for more than 12 months
  • You have not had a “Welcome to Medicare” visit in the last 12 months
