Annual Wellness Physicals in East Meadow

Medicare Patient Services with AFC Urgent Care East Meadow

If you are on Medicare, you can have yearly physicals, or “annual wellness visits” (AMV) to create or update an illness prevention plan. General physicals are different from annual wellness visits for Medicare patients, and AMV does not replace the value provided by a head-to-toe physical exam. While a general physical exam involves tests to assess the health of a patient, these tests are not always covered by Medicare. Instead, annual wellness visits are covered under Medicare Part B benefits. Your physician will do a wellness check and develop a healthcare plan tailored to your unique needs.

What Is Covered Under a Medicare Wellness Physical?

Medicare-approved wellness visits include:

  • Taking a complete medical and family history
  • Recording your prescription medications as well as vitamins and/or supplements you take
  • Taking routine measurements of height, weight, blood pressure, and so on
  • Assessing your health risks by providing you with a questionnaire
  • Checking for hearing impairments
  • Screening for cognitive impairments, such as senile dementia
  • Screening for depression and mental illness
  • Reviewing your ability to perform everyday activities, such as bathing and dressing
  • Providing health advice based on identified risk factors and to promote overall health

Under Medicare Part B, you are covered for an annual wellness visit/physical once per year, and you will not have to provide a copayment unless additional tests are required that are not covered by Medicare. We will be happy to help you better understand your eligible benefits.

Wellness Physicals FAQs

  • Why choose AFC for Urgent Care?

    With state-of-the-art centers and a professional medical team, AFC provides on-site X-rays, labs, procedures, and more!

  • What's the difference between AFC Urgent Care and emergency room services?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.
