What is an AWV?
An AWV is essentially a detailed, question-based assessment of a patient’s current health and risk factors and is free for patients with Medicare Part B.
Once per year, patients meet with a clinician to discuss their health history, answer any questions they may have about their health, and identify at-risk areas. Follow-ups can be provided to help reduce health risk factors identified in AWVs.
The overarching goal of AWVs is to create a complete personal and family health history for patients and help prevent future health problems.
