The New Year can bring many changes and is a great time to choose to put your health first. Start your New Year by learning about your new Medicare coverage and costs, and staying healthy by using preventive services.
If you changed Medicare health or drug plans for 2022, your new coverage begins January 1. Check out your basic costs for Medicare-covered tests, items, and services to see if they’ve changed.
Are you trying to take better care of yourself this New Year? Medicare can help. Medicare covers many preventive services, including your yearly “Wellness” visit and screenings for breast cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Most of these services are provided at no cost to you. Preventive services are key to maintaining your wellbeing; they keep you from getting sick and help find health problems early. Check out the complete list of Medicare-covered preventive services. Call your doctor to discuss what preventive services you may need, and the best time to get them.
Using preventive services to stay healthy and understanding how your coverage works is a great way to kick off your new year. Being confident in your plan choice is also very important.
Here’s to a healthy and happy 2022!
