A Medicare Physical is an introductory and annual comprehensive exam that's fully covered by Medicare. The introductory exam occurs during your first 12 months of Medicare coverage. The annual exam occurs each year thereafter. The overall goal of a Medicare Physical is to assess your health and wellness and plan for any necessary preventive care.
Following your first full year of Medicare, you're entitled to one wellness exam every 12 months. The Medicare Physical focuses on more preventive care aspects as opposed to your standard checkups.
