Alcohol has an increased impact the older you get. Symptoms from drinking will develop quicker than when you were younger. Because of this it is important to get the proper preventative alcohol misuse screenings. 


Luckily, Medicare covers alcohol misuse screenings once per year. Medicare also includes up to four brief face-to-face counseling sessions per year. Medicare covers these sessions if you are in a primary care setting, like a doctor’s office, and your qualified primary care doctor accepts the assignment.


If you are concerned about alcohol misuse, make sure to call your doctor today and ask about these programs.
