As you may be aware, an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly evaluation of a patient's current health. For Medicare Part B beneficiaries, the appointment is free of cost. During an AWV, a doctor will review the patient's health history, identify any potential health issues, and answer any questions. The main goal of an Annual Wellness Visit is to establish a record of the individual's physical and mental well-being to develop a preventive health plan.

While Annual Wellness Visits (AWVs) can benefit healthcare providers by improving communication with their patients and helping them collect reimbursements, there are also several advantages for patients themselves.

Join Maranda Cruce, Clinical Product Analyst at ThoroughCare, as she explains the program's benefits and provides insight into what patients can expect during an Annual Wellness Visit.
