Getting the most out of your Medicare benefits
One of the key changes brought about by the Affordable Care Act has been to make preventive care more available to all Americans. For those enrolled in Medicare Part B, that means no-cost annual wellness checkups and many preventive screenings. If you haven’t seen your doctor for an annual checkup or certain recommended preventive screenings, you may be able to now do so without any out-of-pocket costs. Here are some of the benefits you can expect to receive.
- Annual wellness visits and vaccinations
- Diabetes and heart disease screening
- Mammograms and prostate cancer screenings
