As a pharmacist, if you’re new to Medicare’s care management programs, Annual Wellness Visits (AWVs) are a great program to start off with.

AWVs offer an opportunity to improve and expand patient care while acting as a gateway to other Medicare programs. An Annual Wellness Visit is a yearly assessment of a patient’s current health to establish a record of a patient’s physical and mental well-being for the purpose of preventive health planning. In this video, we’ll discuss the many benefits pharmacists can gain from providing AWVs.

With pharmacists facing DIR fees and lower reimbursements on medications, Medicare’s care management programs, like Annual Wellness Visits, offer opportunities for additional revenue, while addressing gaps in patient care. Pharmacists are uniquely qualified to assist with these programs and can do so through physician & pharmacist partnerships.
