Medicare plans provide this benefit at no cost to the patient. You are eligible for this assessment every 365 days. You may have to pay a coinsurance. The part B deductible may apply if your doctor or Medicare Wellness provider performs tests or services that aren’t covered under these preventive benefits. Generally, if you require these additional tests, we will make an appointment for you with your primary care provider to address your additional healthcare needs.
