Don't wait to get the medical attention you need.

Full Wellness Physicals. Paid Fully by Medicare.

Different types of Medicare physicals are covered differently. With a Medicare wellness physical, doctors follow a laid out plan of care that’s completely covered under Medicare Part B benefits. 

On the other hand, a general physical can come with extra costs. Since the tests are never clearly defined, physicians must guess which ones to perform to best assess a patient’s health. Medicare may or may not cover the cost of the tests. 

Walk-In Wellness Checkups. No Appointment Needed. 

You don’t need a referral from a primary doctor to get wellness physicals at American Family Care® clinics. No appointment is required either. Just walk right in at a time that’s convenient for you. Our clinics have extended morning, evening, and weekend hours. 

What to Expect at a Wellness Checkup 

 Your Medicare wellness physical will follow a specific set of steps approved by Medicare. As a “wellness” exam, the primary purpose of your physical is to prevent future medical issues by identifying risk factors and warning signs.

The Medicare-approved wellness physical includes: 

  • A health risk assessment, including a review of your family medical history
  • Reviewing your current medications and medical providers
  • Routine measurements for height, weight, blood pressure, etc.
  • Assessing signs of memory loss or dementia
  • A personalized consultation with your physician
  • Health screenings and preventive care based on your medical needs and risk factors.

 Wellness physicals are covered once a year under Medicare Part B. You should not have to pay for the physical itself and the approved tests. Medicare may not cover any additional tests. Our staff will be happy to help you understand if your eligible benefits.
