Did you know Medicare completely covers the cost of an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV)? This new benefit extends your options for maintaining and maximizing good health. The AWV is different from the traditional “complete physical examination.” The purpose of the AWV is to assure you are getting the best possible preventive medical care including screening for certain conditions.
According to Medicare guidelines, the AWV is not intended to evaluate existing medical conditions, but rather to focus on preventive care. During the AWV, your physician will review your medical history and current list of medications, identify disease risk factors such as smoking, hypertension and obesity and make a personalized prevention plan to promote health. If you choose, advance care planning can also be discussed at this visit.
