Why an Annual Wellness Visit?

An Annual Wellness Visit with your Primary Care Provider (PCP) is one of the best ways to take charge of your health. This visit helps you keep up with preventive screenings and immunizations, review your overall physical and behavioral health, and discuss any other health needs.

Plus, you’ll get personalized health advice that can lower the risk of diseases like cancer or help manage existing chronic conditions like diabetes or high blood pressure, in a way that’s tailored specifically to you and your needs.

What is an Annual Wellness Visit?

An Annual Wellness Visit is a yearly check-up that is covered in full by your health plan. The purpose of this visit is to establish a personal preventive care plan. It focuses on your health history, risk factors, and age-appropriate screenings. It’s also an opportunity for your PCP or care team to offer actionable advice that helps you maintain or improve your health. An Annual Wellness Visit can be conducted in-person or with a virtual care visit.

Your Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam. You should talk to your PCP or care team about whether you still need to have a physical exam.

Member Tip: When you call to make your appointment, make sure you specifically ask to schedule your “Annual Wellness Visit.”

What should I expect from my Annual Wellness Visit?

Before your visit, your PCP will ask you to complete a Health Risk Assessment (HRA). The HRA asks about your health status, injury risks, and urgent health needs. Your first Annual Wellness Visit will be the most comprehensive. During your visit, you can expect your PCP to:

  • Record your height, weight, blood pressure, other basic measurements
  • Assess your functional ability and safety risks (hearing screening, falling risk, ability to complete activities of daily living, and home safety)
  • Ask about your medical and family history
  • Document and review all your medications, including prescriptions and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs
  • Screen for cognitive impairment (Alzheimer’s and dementia) and depression

Each year, your PCP will use this information to update your preventive health plan and screening schedule. They may also refer you to necessary health education or preventive counseling services to lower risk factors for things like weight loss, fall prevention, tobacco cessation, or physical activity.

You should always come prepared with your medical and family history, immunization records, a list of your current medications (prescribed and OTC), and any questions or concerns you may have.

It is important to follow your PCP’s recommendations and schedule the follow-up care you may need. By the end of your visit, you and your PCP will have created (or updated) your personalized prevention plan. This written plan lets you know which screenings, shots, and other preventive services you need to complete in the next 12 months. These services may include:

  • Blood pressure screening
  • Bone density scan
  • Cancer screenings (ex. breast, colorectal, lung, prostate)
  • Cholesterol test
  • Diabetes screening
  • Vaccines (I.e., COVID-19, flu, pneumococcal, shingles)
  • Vision and hearing tests

Talk with your doctor today about scheduling your Annual Wellness Visit. And don’t forget, completing your Annual Wellness Visit in 2024 will earn you a $100 reward card!
