Annual Wellness Visits

In April 2014,  we began doing AWV wellness visits for our Medicare patients. AWV (annual wellness visit) Medicare covers this visit 100%. No co-pay...No deductible. The purpose behind this visit to help make your provider aware of any changes in your personal health record from year to year. This is especially important if one see's more than one doctor. This helps clear up and inaccuracies in the patient chart. The questionnaire also helps identify any preventative visits that need to be scheduled brought to our and the patient's attention.
 
This visit is done by Patti Claxton, LPN. This is not a regular doctors visit. Patti may identify things that should be looked at by your provider and note items that need to be scheduled.
 
This visit is a way to help better serve you.
