Lily H Posted August 25, 2019 Report Share Posted August 25, 2019 I understand most of you are already very knowledgeable on Medicare coverages but maybe a few will find these useful if you travel north sometimes. 1. Medicare provides one free wellness check and one assessment for signs of Alzheimer's or dementia per year. 2. Free obesity ( Free only for adults with a body mass index BMI of 30 or more) and smoking counseling. 3. Free hospice care if you're given six months or less to live. Medicare of course decides the types of facilities you can use. Medicare will also cover free grief counseling to you and your family members. 4. Medicare pays for disease screenings only when your doctor determines you're at risk for: diabetes, heart disease, hepatitis B or C, HIV, or certain types of cancers. 5. Medicare pays for a hearing exam if your doctor says it's medically necessary. 6. Medicare covers some durable medical equipment, including: wheelchairs, oxygen tanks, blood sugar monitors, walkers, and even hospital beds.
