Medicare Wellness Visits
If you are covered by Medicare, you are eligible for a free Annual Medicare Wellness Visit to talk with your provider about ways to improve your health and prevent disease. The Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam, but it does provide patients with the same opportunity to talk with their provider about health concerns and to develop a plan in partnership with those providers to focus on health, rather than illness.
Some of the services covered during an Annual Wellness Visit include: routine measurements such as weight, height and blood pressure; review of your individual and family medical history, review of your current medications, discussion of the care you receive from other providers, and review of your functional ability and level of safety. Based on this review, you and your provider will develop a health promotion and disease prevention plan based on your specific needs.
After your initial wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months. These visits are not subject to copayments to deductibles, so there is no cost to the individual. Collingsworth Family Medicine at 806-447-5311 to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.
Narcotic Addiction help is available at Collingsworth Family Medicine
CFM follows evidence-based practices to help our patients overcome substance use disorders (SUD), such as addiction, dependency, and substance withdrawal. We believe in a holistic approach by utilizing medication-assisted treatment (MAT) of FDA-approved medications combined with counseling and behavioral therapy to manage the symptoms of withdrawal. Without the burden of these symptoms, patients can focus on positive behavioral and environmental changes to overcome their addictions or dependency.
The benefits of MAT are well established in research to successfully treating opioid addiction and alcoholism. Patients who actively participate in their own care with an open and honest relationship with their medical providers often achieve long-term recovery. Professional counseling in combination with approved medications provides optimum recovery.
CFM and CGH respect patients’ privacy and follow privacy laws. All treatment is confidential and protected under the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
