Most seniors do not take advantage of a free wellness exam offered to new Medicare beneficiaries, available during the first year of Medicare coverage. "Government and private studies show that fewer than 10% of beneficiaries are using the welcome to Medicare exam," said Dan Mendelson, the head of Avalere Health. Many seniors also are not aware of all the other free preventive measures and benefits, such as smoking-cessation services, that are covered by Medicare.
