Take Care Clinics At Select Walgreens Offer Medicare Wellness Visits

Take Care Health Systems, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Walgreens (NYSE: WAG)(NASDAQ: WAG) and the nation's largest and most comprehensive manager of convenient care clinics and worksite health and wellness centers, is now providing the Welcome to Medicare Preventive Visit and Medicare Yearly Wellness Visits at all Take Care Clinic locations throughout the country. The Welcome to Medicare Preventive Visit and Medicare Yearly Wellness Visits are wellness services for Medicare enrollees which include screenings for a number of common conditions as well as education and counseling to encourage wellness and prevent disease.

According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) only 6.5 percent of eligible seniors have used their Medicare Wellness Visit benefit. The benefit is available upon enrollment and then once a year with no out-of-pocket costs. With accessible locations inside more than 360 Walgreens and convenient seven day a week hours, Take Care Health can help remove barriers to health care access that may prevent Medicare enrollees from easily accessing care.

“A focus on preventive health care and wellness can play an integral role in improving health outcomes and reducing costs,” said Sandra Festa Ryan, MSN, CPNP, FAANP and chief nurse practitioner officer for Take Care Health Systems. “By providing a simple and easy access point, Take Care Health hopes to help more patients gain the full benefit of their Medicare coverage so they can focus on getting and staying well.”

Upon completion of a Welcome to Medicare Preventive Visit or Medicare Yearly Wellness Visit at a Take Care Clinic, a Take Care Health provider will deliver a personalized wellness plan to each patient with clear explanations of findings and recommendations. A summary of the visit, with patient permission, will also be shared with each patient’s primary care provider and health plan. Information sharing between Take Care Health and a patient’s Medicare Advantage plan provider is enabled by the electronic medical record (EMR) system utilized at all Take Care Clinics.
