Overview

Annual Wellness Visits – Medicare’s Best Kept Secret

The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a valuable benefit offered by Medicare that helps members stay healthy by reviewing and updating key information such as:

  • Routine Screenings
  • Medications
  • Home safety issues including cognitive impairments
  • Health advice and referrals
  • These visits also give providers an opportunity to close any care gaps.

Many Medicare members fail to take advantage of this service due to confusion around cost and what is performed during this visit. This confusion extends to providers and even coders.

Join as we sort out the fact from the fiction in Annual Wellness Visits – Medicare’s Best Kept Secret.
