Medicare Annual Wellness.

Medicare Annual Wellness Visit 

Notice to Medicare Patients – Regarding “Annual Wellness Visits”

As you may be aware, Medicare now covers an ”Annual Wellness Visit.” This new benefit is designed to focus you and your provider on plans for prevention and wellness and encourage you to get preventive services that are appropriate to you and are fully covered by Medicare.

You need to know that there are specific Medicare guidelines for the new Annual Wellness Visit-it is NOT what most people think of as a yearly “physical exam.” It is not a “HANDS ON” exam. Rather, it is a review of your health, plus education and counseling about preventive services.

Your provider may ask you to schedule a separate visit if you need treatment for a specific condition, or you can use your scheduled time to have your provider take care of your immediate health concern.

During the Annual Wellness Visit, your doctor will:

  • Record and evaluate your medical and family history, and medications.
  • Check your blood pressure, vision, weight, and height to get a baseline for your care.
  • Make sure you’re up-to-date with preventive screenings and services, such as cancer screenings and vaccinations.
  • Screen you for conditions related to problem solving, depression, and functional status.
  • Perhaps order further tests, depending on your general health and medical history.

At the end of the visit, your doctor will develop a personalized plan for preventive services that you need to help keep you at your best health over the next few years. Depending on the results of these services, you may need to schedule a regular office visit with your provider to discuss the results and possible treatment.

This information will help us guide your healthcare and provide you with advice to improve your overall health.

The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit can be scheduled at any of the St. Luke Community Clinics with your primary care provider.

As always, we appreciate the trust you put in us to take care of all of your healthcare needs and hope that you will take advantage of this new benefit.
