Annual Health Assessment
An important tool to help you reach and maintain your optimal wellness so you can stay healthy, safe and independent.
Your Annual Health Assessment is when you and your doctor put your undivided attention on your health. You might think, or hear others ask, why go in for an assessment each year? In short, your doctor can observe and learn a great deal about your health and wellness during this visit, helping him or her detect problems early and prevent problems later.
Who is eligible for a free AHA each year?
All Brown & Toland Members currently on a Medicare Advantage plan.
