Mental Health: Recommend Medicare Preventive Services

20% of Americans experience mental illness each year (see CDC), and it disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minority groups (see CDC). During National Mental Health Month, recommend appropriate preventive services, including:

   - Depression Screening

   - Annual Wellness Visit

   - Initial Preventive Physical Exam

  - Alcohol Misuse Screening & Counseling

Medicare covers preventive services, and your patients pay nothing if you accept assignment.
