Annual WELLNESS VISIT:
Medicare mandates reimbursement of CPT Codes G0438, G0439 & 99497 with no co-pay, no co-insurance and no deductible. Annual Wellness Visits (AWV) present medical offices with an excellent opportunity to generate substantial revenue from Medicare’s guarantee of payment.
The AWV is the heart and soul of Medicare’s effort to plan each patient’s long term preventative care. These AWVs are mandated to be reimbursed by Medicare. This guaranteed reimbursement environment can substantially revise the economics of practices that take advantage of this solution.

The Problem With Delivering Annual Wellness Visits
Delivering the Annual Wellness Program with excellence is becoming a necessity. The problem with delivering the Annual Wellness Program is that it requires a dedicated staff with robust systems in place, working day in and day out on outreach and delivery. Often times, it falls onto the provider to deliver these programs, which is ineffective and capacity limiting.
