Medicare Wellness Visits
If you are a medicare patient, an annual visit is strongly recommended to keep both you and our physicians updated on your current state of health. As a practice that focuses on preventative medicine, we want to assist you in being proactive when it comes to your health. These annual visits are covered in full by your insurance.
If you are a non-medicare patient, we recommend an annual physical, to keep up to date with your health status and any necessary prevention. These annual visits are typically covered in full by your insurance.
A nutrition visit can be scheduled with Cyndi Cansler, a Registered and Licensed Dietitian. As part of the Affordable Care Act, almost all commercial insurance now covers nutritional counseling for patients, usually without a copay or deductible. Healthy patients are generally covered as a preventative service. In some cases a diagnosis of diabetes or overweight/obesity may be required. Ms. Cansler is credentialed with Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, Aetna, and United Healthcare.
