Medicare Wellness Visits
If you are covered by Medicare, you are eligible for a free Annual Medicare Wellness Visit to talk with your provider about ways to improve your health and prevent disease. The Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam, but it does provide patients with the same opportunity to talk with their provider about health concerns and to develop a plan in partnership with those providers to focus on health, rather than illness.
Some of the services covered during an Annual Wellness Visit include: routine measurements such as weight, height and blood pressure; review of your individual and family medical history, review of your current medications, discussion of the care you receive from other providers, and review of your functional ability and level of safety. Based on this review, you and your provider will develop a health promotion and disease prevention plan based on your specific needs.
After your initial wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months. These visits are not subject to copayments to deductibles, so there is no cost to the individual. Call Toledo Bend Family Medicine at 409-787-1416 to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.
Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to Noon and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Parents with children and adolescents enrolled in Medicaid and CHIPS can help to keep their family healthy through active participation in the Texas Health Steps program. Texas Health Steps or “T-Steps” offers routine checkups for children from birth to age 20, and pays for all costs.
The frequency and components of recommended T-Steps checkups vary by age, with more frequent visits encouraged in the first year of life. Beginning at age three, children and adolescents should be scheduled for an annual checkup. Although exams vary based on a child’s specific age, they include all medical screenings, vaccinations and laboratory tests recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.
Medical providers at Toledo Bend Family Medicine typically assess vision, hearing, height and weight, nutrition, immunizations and overall development, factors that are reflective of your child’s health status, and may impact your child’s performance in school, and during casual and organized play and sports. For an appointment, please call 409/787-1418.
Toledo Bend Family Medicine is your local Texas Health Steps provider beginning with children age 6 months or older and can also meet the medical needs of children enrolled in the CHIP program.
The Chronic Care Management Program at Toledo Bend Family Medicine was established to help Medicare patients with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions to play a more active and effective role in the management of their health.
Michelle Butler, LVN, a certified Clinic Health Coach, meets with each patient enrolled in the program to talk about their health care needs, concerns and goals. Together, Michelle and the patient will develop an individualized plan to accomplish these goals, and will monitor progress over time, making adjustments to the plan as needed.
If you have a chronic condition, and would like to join the health improvement team, call 409-787-1418 to schedule an Annual Wellness Visit with your primary care provider to discuss enrollment.
