Welvie: A new surgery support program from Medicare

What is Welvie?

Welvie is a new surgery support program from Medicare that is being evaluated in the State of Ohio.The program is being offered at no charge to a group of Medicare beneficiaries selected by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Welvie is an online program designed by surgeons to empower patients. It walks you through the entire surgery decision-making process - - - from diagnosis to recovery - - - in a unique step-by-step approach.

 Welvie helps you:

- Work with your physician so you understand your surgical and non-surgical treatment options

- Understand how to evaluate the risks and benefits of all your treatment options

- Prepare for and recover from a surgical procedure to help reduce the chance of complications and errors and ensure a better outcome

There's simply nothing like Welvie anywhere. It's intelligent, intuitive design encourages questions and other options. Welvie brings you in on the surgery decision with your doctor in a simple, organized and confidential way.

At this time, only those Ohioans pre-selected by the Department of Health and Human Services are eligible to register for Welvie. For more information, visit or call toll-free 1-877-386-6556, Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.


  1. Hi! Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!

  2. Thanks for the compliments. Please give me your website address and I'll consider linking to it.

  3. This site is bogus as it will not allow us to log in & there is no plan of rewarding $25.00 for participation. I will just skip the surgery plan as the person I care for is irritated & tired of being involved in something that does not even work.
