Aging population should turn its focus to preventative care
Camarillo Acorn

Have you recently enrolled in Medicare or will you in the near future? If so, let me be the first to say welcome. What should your first step be as a new Medicare beneficiary? I recommend taking advantage of the “Welcome to Medicare” preventive-care benefit. During the first 12 months that you have Medicare Part B, you can get a Welcome to Medicare preventive visit with your doctor. The visit includes a review of your medical and social history as it relates to your current health picture.
