Adult Medical Care
Regular primary and preventive care are important to maintaining our health as we age.
Our professional and experienced medical team provides care for routine, urgent and chronic healthcare needs for all stages of adult life.
Our primary care providers offer a range of screenings to help identify disease risk early. Depending on your age and gender, these may include screenings for high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, breast and cervical cancer, prostate cancer, sexually transmitted infections, depression, and osteoporosis.
Adult medical services include:
Medicare Annual Wellness Visit
If you are a new Medicare enrollee, you are entitled to a “Welcome to Medicare” visit to meet with your health care provider to discuss and update your personal care plan. There is no charge for this visit and the Part B deductible does not apply.
Some of the topics addressed during this visit:
This visit must take place in the first 12 months you are enrolled in Medicare Part B.
As a Medicare beneficiary you receive this benefit each year and it is classified differently from your annual physical. Your subsequent wellness visit appointments will cover topics that your provider established as a baseline during your Welcome to Medicare visit.
Chronic Care Management
Another Medicare Part B benefit is Chronic Care Management (CCM). If you are living with 2 or more chronic diseases, CCM can help you manage your long-term health concerns.
What are some of the chronic conditions that CCM helps address?
We will provide you with direct access to a personal care manager that is available to you by phone or email. Your care manager will work with you between your appointments with your provider.
They can provide assistance with:
You may pay a nominal fee for CCM, and the Part B deductible and coinsurance apply. If you have supplemental insurance, or have both Medicare and Medicaid, you may find the monthly fee is covered.
Let your healthcare team at Little River Medical Center know that you would like to enroll in the CCM program and learn how we can help you create a care health plan that meets your health needs. To learn more about our Chronic Care Management program, please call 843.663.8289.
