Medicare Wellness Visits


What Are Medicare Wellness Visits?

As people age, the importance of Medicare Wellness Visits becomes more evident. Seniors over the age of 60 in particular are at an increased risk of developing chronic conditions such as COPD, high blood pressure, and Parkinson’s disease. While some illnesses cannot be cured, they can be managed with the help of medications and ongoing medical support. Dr. Trippe’s experience in providing care for the Waco community has endowed him with the knowledge needed to guide people to a better state of health. We welcome those on Medicare to visit our center and take advantage of our health care services.

Why Are Medicare Wellness Visits Needed?

People who are eligible can take advantage of Medicare Part B coverage. This plan allows them to receive general health consultations during regular Medicare Wellness Visits. These consultations assess health issues like blood pressure, hearing, cognitive function, and more. Seniors who have difficulty walking, struggle with dizziness, or are suffering from conditions such as diabetes should take advantage of these appointments more frequently. By speaking with Dr. Trippe at our Waco center, patients can attain a greater awareness of their conditions and equip themselves with the skills needed to better manage their concerns. Some of the services offered at our center include lifestyle modification guidance, medications, and lab tests designed to accurately diagnose medical concerns.

What Happens During Medicare Wellness Visits

Medicare Wellness Visits are designed to provide people with comprehensive health care analyses. This involves cognitive screenings, blood tests, general weight assessments, and more. Additionally, the visit may involve creating a 5-10 year screening schedule or checklist for follow-up appointments. When you come in for a visit at WPC Aesthetics & Wellness, Dr. Trippe will also offer his health education and preventive counseling services. The advice provided will relate to weight loss, physical activity, smoking cessation, fall prevention, nutrition, and more.
