The "Team Up to Stay Healthy" brochure has helped your patients understand and take advantage of their options covered by Medicare. The new colorectal insert, "Early Detection Saves Lives" is now available to provide people with Medicare information on eligibility requirements to clarify several different tests that screen for colorectal cancer.

  • Explains the types of physician visits covered by Medicare in clear, simple language
  • Helps patients adequately prepare for their physician visits (i.e., what to ask, what to bring, what to expect, etc.)
  • Gives patients a brief overview of common preventive screenings
  • Offers patients access to additional information and helpful resources about their covered services

When you clearly communicate with your patients about preventive services, you not only participate with your patients in making more informed health care decisions, you also help them avoid misunderstandings about coverage and charges.
