This is a routine office visit with a new healthcare provider for females age 65 and older. This visit includes:

  • A review of your medical history

  • Asking about your safety habits (seatbelt use)
  • Alcohol, tobacco and drug use
  • Diet, weight and exercise
  • Sexual activity

Based on your answers, it may also include counseling about reducing health risks.

During a routine wellness visit your weight, height and blood pressure will be checked.

  • The healthcare provider will also review your immunization record and recommend updates, such as a flu shot.
  • If you are a woman, the physical exam may also include a pelvic exam or other additional physical checks beyond your blood pressure, weight and height.

Most insurance plans cover wellness visits without a copay. However, you may incur additional charges if your healthcare provider:

  • Needs to assess any problems or abnormal findings
  • Advises additional testing or immunizations

It is helpful if you are prepared for your appointment with your healthcare provider. Before your annual physical:

  • Make a list of questions, symptoms, or concerns you want to discuss.
  • Write a list of your medications to bring to the appointment (including over the counter).

During the appointment:

  • Ask about your overall health and any specific concerns that you have.
  • Ask about screenings and immunizations recommended for your age group.

After your appointment you should know:

  • What immunizations you received, the reason for each of them and if there are any side effects.
  • If tests were ordered, ask if the test results will change your treatment plan. If not, ask if they are they necessary.
  • All follow-up plans, if any.
  • If there are symptoms you should report sooner than your next appointment.
