I’m glad you’re no longer baking yourself in the sun. But don’t think you’re off the hook for protecting your skin.

Will Medicare cover an Annual Wellness Visit?
Original Medicare covers the Annual Wellness Visit at 100% of the Medicare-approved amount when you get the service from a provider who accepts Medicare. You pay nothing (no deductible or coinsurance).
Medicare Advantage plans must cover Annual Wellness Visits without applying deductibles, copays or coinsurance when you:
- See a network provider, and
- Meet Medicare’s rules for the service
