Free Medicare Testing – Don’t Miss Out On These Preventative Services

Once you are on Medicare, there are many preventative test and screenings that are covered at 100%. Many Medicare beneficiaries are not aware that Medicare covers all of these preventative services. It is a smart idea to take advantage of these – preventative screenings are designed to protect your health through early detection of disease and illness. Some of the 100% Medicare covered preventative services include:

 

  • One-time “Welcome to Medicare” physical exam

  • Annual wellness visit after 12 months enrolled in Part B

  • Immunizations – pneumococcal, hepatitis B, annual flu shot

  • Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening – one time, with referral

  • Alcohol misuse screening – every 12 months for certain individuals

  • Diabetes screenings – up to two per year for those with risk factors
