Women in their 50s and early 60s
One of the significant health milestones for women as we age is menopause. While it is in an undeniable and inevitable consequence of aging, it is all too common for women to feel in the dark about what to expect.
With a Welia Women’s Health provider by your side, you’ll have someone to guide you through this time of change, answering your questions, helping you set expectations and manage symptoms, and ensuring you manage increased risks for osteoporosis and heart disease. With a Welia provider in your corner, you’ll proactively manage challenges and pursue strategies that allow you to enjoy this stage of your life, whatever it holds for you.
For women with Medicare Part B insurance coverage, your no-cost annual wellness visit is an important step to help you focus on managing your overall health and prevent disease while providing a valuable opportunity to talk to your provider about your overall wellness. Breast and pelvic exams are covered every other year.
