Annual Wellness Visit (AWV)
The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) was initiated by Medicare January 1, 2011 to maximize the potential for Medicare Optimization. The real value to the Annual Wellness Visit program is that it helps reduce the onset of chronic illnesses, helps prevent catastrophic accidents, helps keep patients out of the hospital, and helps them stay out of long term care and nursing homes. This is your contribution back to our nation’s healthcare system – you’ll do your part to help reduce the annual spend on Medicare.
The codes for these visits are:
G0438 for the Initial Visit (1 year after eligibility)
G0439 for the subsequent visits (every year thereafter)
The drawback for many physicians has simply been the time to perform the necessary steps to accurately fulfill the CMS obligations, or the AWV has simply not been accurately completed to meet the CMS guidelines.
A patient’s cost for the visit is ZERO out of pocket, but the benefits for both your practice and the patient’s long term health are nearly incalculable.
