 Take better care of yourself

Remember that Medicare covers a number of preventive screenings and tests to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle. Preventive tests include the flu shot, colonoscopy, mammogram, prostate cancer screening, yearly wellness visit, bone mass measurement and screenings for depression, cardiovascular issues, diabetes, glaucoma, obesity, and STD. Self-management for diabetes training is available as well counseling for obesity. Don’t forget your pneumococcal shot. Make this your best year yet and take better care of yourself!

 

Soon eligible for Medicare? Have questions about Medicare coverage? Having a problem with your Medicare coverage?  For help, contact an APPRISE counselor at (610) 834-1040 ext. 20

 

APPRISE - trained counselors, no selling, confidential, impartial, no endorsement, help finding the best option for you.

"From counseling several 90 year olds who had their retiree plan taken away

to assisting seniors who are struggling to pay for their prescriptions...

those are the moments that are most gratifying."
