The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly appointment, covered by Medicare Part B, to create or update a personalized prevention plan. This plan is designed to help prevent illness based on current health and risk factors

The Annual Wellness Visit consists of a “Health Risk Assessment” which includes:

  • A review of your medical and family history.
  • A review of your current providers and prescriptions.
  • Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements.
  • Personalized health advice.
  • A list of risk factors and treatment options for you.
  • A screening schedule (like a checklist) for appropriate preventive services. Get details about coverage for screenings, shots, and other preventive services.
  • Advance care planning
  • A cognitive assessment to look for signs of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease

Original Medicare covers the Annual Wellness Visit at 100% of the Medicare-approved amount when service is received from a participating provider. This means you pay nothing (no deductible or coinsurance). Medicare Advantage Plans are required to cover AWVs without applying deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance with an in-network provider who meets Medicare’s eligibility requirements for the service.
