Annual Wellness Visits

Only a mere 18.8% of eligible Medicare Beneficiaries receive an AWV. Because all Medicare patients are eligible for a free yearly wellness visit at no cost, physician offices are missing out on an additional revenue stream. When health plans make AWVs a central part of their member engagement efforts, they see a substantial lift in the completion of both AWVs and other high-value healthcare activities (HCAs). Plans can also benefit from using the AWV to improve the accuracy and efficacy of their risk adjustment efforts.
