Preparing for your visit

What should you bring to your ‘Welcome to Medicare’ Wellness Visit?

Medical records, including immunization records:
Even if the Wellness Visit is being conducted by your current provider, gather and bring with you as much medical information as you can to make sure nothing’s overlooked.

Family Health History:
Try to learn as much as you can about your family’s health history before your appointment. The information will help you and your provider better understand what screenings you should have and what to watch for in the future.

Bring a list of prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications that you currently take, how often you take them and why.
