4. Meidicare annual wellness visits require administration of

some kind of cognitive test each year. At my clinic, it's just drawing the clock face and remembering three words for a few minutes. Its a simple screening. They also run through a depression questionnaire. It's required for the exam.

So, while they don't give a dementia test to everyone, people on Medicare get one every year if they take advantage of the free wellness checkup, which they should. It's the only time I even see my primary care doctor in most years. He prescribes my medications for a full year, after getting my blood work numbers.
