Check-Ups Are Important Even When You Are Feeling Healthy
Even if you aren’t sick, it is necessary to have regular check-ups and preventative screenings. Many conditions are caught early during check-ups leading to better health outcomes. Frequency of check-ups depend on your age, gender, health history, and family health history. Ask your provider for your frequency recommendation.
All insurances, including Medicare, pay for checks-ups once per year. If enrolled in Medicare, there’s no cost to you for your Annual Wellness Visit.
