Check Your Blood Pressure

Spare a minute to keep your heart and kidneys healthy—a fast and simple test can tell you if your blood pressure is too high.

Medicare helps make checking your blood pressure easy, as part of your “Welcome to Medicare” and yearly “Wellness” visits.

It’s important for you to know your current blood pressure numbers, even when you’re feeling fine. High blood pressure usually has no signs or symptoms, but it can lead to a higher risk of heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure.

Now’s a great time to get tested and find out your blood pressure number. Visit Medicare.gov to see what else your yearly “Wellness” exam covers.
