You’ve had a physical, you’ve had your eyes checked, and your hearing. You have gone through all the usual testing— cholesterol, blood sugar, blood pressure, etc. But have you scheduled your Annual Wellness Visit? This important appointment can help you regain control of your health and enhance your senior lifestyle. Whether you believe you’re healthy or not, here are three great reasons to schedule it today:
- At this appointment, you’ll receive a five-year-plan to take to your primary care doctor so he can coordinate with specialists as needed, as well as a 90-day action plan for immediate targeting of health problems. Having the ability to catch potential problems early means greater success with treatment.
- With the knowledge gained from your appointment, you’ll make the most of your retirement by staying fit and healthy. Plus, you’ll diminish the risk of hospitalization and the high costs associated with that risk.
- If you’re worried about cost, don’t be. With Medicare, you pay nothing out of pocket. So you have nothing to lose and lots to gain with an Annual Wellness Visit.
Safeguard your health and prevent injuries and illness before they happen. Schedule your Annual Wellness Visit today.
