Medicare started offering several preventative benefits this year; however, statistics show that most Medicare beneficiaries have not taken advantage of these new free preventative benefits. In an effort to inform Medicare beneficiaries about these new free benefits, Medicare has launched a promotional campaign. These new free tests and treatments include colonoscopies and, for women, mammograms and pelvic exams. Additionally, there is also a free wellness visit to your primary physician to make sure you are receiving the right prescriptions and care.
