You could have run into a number of things.#1 You can get blood work done weekly, if your doctor orders the tests to treat/monitor a condition. So if your lipids are abnormal, your blood sugar high, you have had a stroke, etc. no limitation exists.#2 It is possible your doctor wrote a code that says annual physical or new patient physical. Medicare will only pay for one such item in a 365 day period. So I would talk with your PCP who ordered the tests. Some preventative care items were added to medicare with the changes last year. These are new and maybe your PCP checked this box instead of that box. Finally in the event it really is 13 months and you don't have any conditions that require treatment or monitoring, congratulations on your great health and waiting an extra month won't kill you.GordonAtlanta
