Medicare did not cover an annual checkup with your doctor, and you could pay hundreds of dollars in co-pays for the preventive screenings you need.
Nearly everyone with Medicare now has access to free preventive services, including 33 million people who got free preventive care last year. Now, seniors have access to the care they need to stay healthy, including these and many more:
- Annual checkups
- Flu shots
- Cholesterol and blood pressure checks
- Colon cancer screenings
- Bone density screenings
