Senior Health Checklist: A yearly review
Health for the Road Ahead
As you move into your golden years, make sure your health care matches your needs, goals and desires.
Go over this checklist of health care, insurance and advance care decisions each year so you can relax and enjoy a smooth road ahead:
|✔||Review your insurance. Medicare Open Enrollment runs Oct. 15 – Dec. 7, your annual opportunity to select different Medicare options. Attend a free session or call 1.877.315.3279.|
|✔||Check-up regularly. Get one free Medicare Wellness Visit* each year, where we’ll screen you for common ailments that can be treated well when caught early. Schedule yours now.|
|✔||Go virtual! PacMed offers Zoom visits for many appointment types, including Medicare wellness visits during the pandemic, from the safety and comfort of home. We can walk you through it.|
|✔||Re-hire your care team. Do your doctors listen, collaborate, explain things and work proactively for your best health? Our team approach leads to one of the highest Top Doctor percentages in the Northwest. Make sure you have a care team that will work for you.|
|✔||Make your wishes known. Talk with a trusted friend or partner about what you want if you can’t make decisions yourself, and prepare the paperwork to empower them to help.|

*Please note, If you have symptoms to discuss with a doctor, these fall outside the Medicare Wellness Visit and should be addressed in a regular appointment with your physician.
