Do you fall under the age group of 65 years or older?
Do you have a medical or family history of any chronic disease?
If yes, you have earned an incredible benefit from Annual Wellness Visits (AWV). Being independent and active is necessary to improve the quality of life, and AWV will empower you to achieve that!
Now that you have decided to enroll yourself for an Annual Wellness Visit, you won’t have to look anywhere else. At AdvantagePlusNurses, our experienced nurse practitioners will create a detailed personalized wellness plan that will map out the Medicare preventive screenings for upcoming years.
How Much Does Annual Wellness Visits Cost?
Well, we have got good news for you!
If you have Medicare Part B, or better known as the traditional Medicare, you will not be charged a single penny! Any additional charges incurred will be in case your doctor decides to:
- Perform additional tests
- Your preventive benefits don’t cover these additional tests
Now, all you need is to take that leap and ensure timely intervention and prevention of chronic diseases.
Besides, early detection allows you to keep your overall medical costs in check!
What Can You Expect During Annual Wellness Visits?
At Advantage Plus Nurses, our dedicated team of professionals will go through your entire family and medical history to determine if you are at risk of any disease.
For that purpose, you will be given a “Health Risk Assessment,” which is a questionnaire that needs to be filled as part of the Annual Wellness Visit.
We encourage you to answer in detail so that there is no scope for your prevention plan’s false detection or errors.
In case our nurse practitioners detect any vulnerability for chronic conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, they will devise a personalized prevention plan for you.
Besides, AWV also includes:
- Blood pressure, weight, and height measurements
- Customized health advice
- List of treatment options
- Screening for depression
- Identifying cognitive impairment, if any
- Updating current prescriptions
- Reviewing healthcare providers
- Scanning for urgent health requirements
- Determining behavioral risks
- Identifying risks of injury
- Checking for signs of hearing impairments
Timely prevention of such diseases is essential for you to lead a life that you deserve!
What Should You Carry to Your Annual Wellness Visit?
Since our nurse practitioner will need to understand your current, past, and possible health complications in the future, you need to carry the following to your AWV:
- Immunization records
- Medical records
- Detailed family health history
- List of supplements and medications along with dosage
- List of healthcare providers
- Information regarding durable medical equipment (DME)
Leverage Our Counselling Sessions
We aim to enhance your overall health and wellbeing. To achieve that, we offer counseling sessions based on our assessment during the Annual Wellness Visit.
You may need preventive counseling and health education concerning nutrition, physical activity, weight loss, fall prevention, and smoking cessation.
It all depends on the identified risk factors, age, screening history, reports shared by you, and your current health status.
