There’s no cost to you for your Enhanced Annual Wellness Visit (EAV), a comprehensive annual visit with your primary care physician (PCP). It’s an important way to help maintain or improve your health and well-being.
Your EAV Includes:
- $0 copay.
- A detailed exam and conversation with your PCP about your health.
- Your EAV will help you and your doctor create a personalized care plan that’s right for you.
- Topics for discussion at your EAV may include the importance of preventive services (such as vaccines), cancer screenings (such as mammograms and colonoscopies), medication adherence, maintaining healthy bones, preventing falls, bladder issues, advanced directives (such as a Health Care Proxy), quitting smoking and more.
How It Works:
Schedule an appointment with your doctor’s office and be sure to tell them that the appointment is for your Enhanced Annual Wellness Visit. Next, complete your Health Risk Assessment, answering each question to the best of your ability so that your doctor can accurately gauge your health. During the discussion with your doctor you’ll review the results of your Health Risk Assessment and the status of any current medical conditions, as well as your health goals and treatments, if needed.
