During a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV), you and your doctor will focus on overall wellness, prevention and early disease detection.
The AWV is designed to support you in taking an active role in managing your health and improving your well-being and quality of life. Doctors recommend the visit and encourage all Medicare patients to schedule one every year.
One of the most valuable parts of the AWV is the creation of a long-term preventive care plan based on Health Risk Assessment; a current list of medical providers and medications; screening for cognition, hearing, functional status and fall risk; family history, health risk factors and age-specific preventive screenings.
While both an annual physical and an AWV are important, they are not the same. During an annual physical, your doctor looks for signs of major problems and symptoms and conducts important routine tests.
Medicare covers 100 percent of the AWV visit. You are not responsible for deductibles, co-payments or co-insurance amounts.
Be your own advocate! Call your primary care doctor today and schedule your AWV.
