Immunizations and Preventive Services Covered by Medicare

Everyone knows that regular exercise, eating right, maintaining a healthy weight, and ceasing tobacco use are all important for preventing illness and increasing your chances for a longer life.  In addition to taking those steps, you can also take advantage of many immunizations and preventive services which are covered by Medicare.  The following is a list of just some of the services available to you, at no charge:

  • “Welcome to Medicare” preventive visit
  • Yearly “Wellness” visit
  • Influenza, pneumococcal, and Hepatitis B vaccinations
  • Smoking cessation therapy
  • Breast, colorectal, and lung cancer screening

I encourage you to check out this link to Medicare’s Guide to Preventive Services.  It has detailed information on all the therapies, screenings, and vaccinations.  Page 27 has a helpful list of covered preventive services.  https://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/10110.pdf

As they say, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Be sure to check out the benefits that come with your specific Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plans as well.  Many plans offer discounts on health club benefits, hearing and vision discounts, and some have a 24-hour nurse line care, among others.

If you have questions on this or any other topic, feel free to contact us.  We are happy to assist you in any way we can.  Thanks for stopping by!
