The new health care law includes a significant number of changes that will affect Medicare over the next few years. Some of these changes went into effect on January 1, 2011. The most important changes that will affect people with Medicare coverage in 2011 involve prescription drug costs and out-of-pocket payments for preventive services.
Beginning January 1, Medicare patients can receive yearly wellness exams and most preventive services at no cost. Preventive services include Bone Mass Measurement, Colorectal Cancer Screenings, Flu Shots, and Diabetes Screenings to name a few (click Read More for checklist). Preventive services have shown to benefit overall health by identifying and addressing risk factors that can be managed and treated before they become major problems. Lake Health recommends that patients discuss with their physician which preventive services may be right for them.
For patients who are in a Medicare Advantage Plan or have other insurance, their costs may be different. Lake Health recommends that these patients contact their plan or benefit administrator directly to find out about costs. Lake Health recommends that you contact your plan benefit administrator directly to find out about costs.
