Southeast Medical Group is committed to ensuring that you receive the comprehensive care you deserve. Today, we shed light on a vital component of Medicare coverage – the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (MAWV).

What is a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit?

The Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (MAWV) is a Medicare-covered proactive healthcare service aimed at promoting preventive care and fostering a personalized wellness plan for Medicare beneficiaries. Unlike a traditional physical exam, the MAWV focuses on preventive measures, health screenings, and establishing a roadmap for your future health goals.

During the visit, your healthcare provider will:

Review your medical history

Assess your current health status

Conduct screenings for potential health risks

Develop a personalized preventive care plan tailored to your unique needs.

The MAWV serves as an opportunity for you to discuss any health concerns, medications, or lifestyle habits that may impact your well-being.

Who Qualifies for a MAWV?

All Medicare beneficiaries, regardless of their health status, are eligible for the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit. Whether you're new to Medicare or have been enrolled for years, taking advantage of this benefit is essential for maintaining your health and well-being as you age.

Why is it Crucial for Medicare Patients to Take Advantage of a No-Copay MAWV?

The significance of the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit cannot be overstated. By participating in this preventive care service, you empower yourself to take control of your health and potentially identify any underlying health issues before they escalate. Moreover, the MAWV is offered at no additional cost to you*, making it a valuable and accessible resource for Medicare beneficiaries.

Regular preventive care not only helps detect health problems early but also enables you to work with your healthcare provider to develop strategies for managing existing conditions and preventing future ones. The need for a MAWV only increases as you age. By investing in your health today, you can enjoy a higher quality of life and reduce the likelihood of encountering more serious health issues down the road.
