News: 14.3 million Medicare beneficiaries receive preventive services

Case Management Weekly, July 18, 2012

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act helped 14.3 million people with original Medicare receive at least one preventive service at no cost to them during the first five months of 2012, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced recently. 

A major goal of this law is helping people remain healthy by helping them take charge of their own health and prevent health problems before they occur, according to a CMS press release. The law also provides an annual wellness visit with the physician of their choice at no cost to beneficiaries and other preventive services.
