Enrollees are underutilizing Medicare’s free preventive services
According to results from our latest Medicare Survey, nearly 65% of our readers hadn't – or didn't think they had – utilized one of Medicare's free preventive services in the past year.
What free preventive services does Medicare offer?
The Affordable Care Act legislation included several ounces of prevention for Medicare beneficiaries: free wellness exams plus a range of tests, from mammograms and colonoscopies to glaucoma screenings. Other preventive benefits include flu shots and smoking cessation counseling.
Preventive services are provided to help you avoid becoming sick in the first place. Since 2011, Medicare beneficiaries have had access to free preventive care, with free “annual wellness visits,” personalized prevention plans, and some screenings, including mammograms – all thanks to the Affordable Care Act.
