Welcome to Medicare Exam Overview 

The Welcome to Medicare exam focuses on identifying modifiable risk factors for medical conditions that frequently affect the elderly, as well as education, counseling and referral for Medicare-covered preventive services.

Join guest speaker Dr. Kimberly A. Howerton, a practicing family practitioner from Jackson, Tenn., on June 8 starting at 11:30 a.m. CT for a one-hour Webinar to learn

which preventive and screening services Medicare covers to keep your patients healthy and find problems early when treatment is most effective.
