To provide the level of quality care that you have come to expect from our physicians, we require an annual physical for you to continue to be a patient at Capital Medical Clinic. The annual physical is a time for you and your physician to comprehensively cover your medical care and conditions not routinely discussed in the regular care of current medical conditions. Unfortunately, Medicare will not pay for this service, even though your doctor considers this medically necessary. Therefore, you will be responsible for payment of this service. The cost of the Annual Physical is $215.
Please note, if you discuss a newor ongoing health concern such as asthma, or anew condition discovered during your physical (such as a urinary tract infection) in the same visit and the physician provides medical treatment, such as a referral or prescription, we must bill Medicare separately for these services.Incaseslikethese,theacuteorongoingcare maygenerateadditionaloutofpocketexpenses, such as a deductible or co-insurance.
