Why is an Annual Wellness Visit So Important?
Your Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly Medicare-designed appointment with your Southwest Care Center provider intended to focus on prevention and create or update a personalized wellness plan. This plan may help prevent illness based on your current health and risk factors. Medicare no longer covers a head-to-toe annual physical. A physical exam will not be covered at this visit. However, if during the course of your appointment, diagnostic care is required, Medicare will bill you for that evaluation and treatment.
The AWV is similar to but separate from the one-time “Welcome to Medicare” preventive visit.
If you believe like we do, that medicine must be personalized, based on trust, affordable and available when you need it, please call and make an appointment at 505.988.8869.
