Well, we are both now on Medicare and I had my first physical last week. I got three shots in addition to what they call a "wellness" visit (no longer calling it a physical).
I will get an ekg, bone density, etc. etc. All this with no charge and a monthly payment of less than $200 for each of us.


The no co-pay physical is a requirement of Obamacare. Otherwise Medicare Part B pays only 80% of the approved charge for outpatient care.
