Annual Wellness Exams Q & A

What are annual wellness exams?

Annual wellness exams focus on helping you live a healthier, longer life. The purpose of the exam is to assess your current health and screen for issues that may lead to future health problems. 

An annual wellness exam is not the same as an annual physical. The wellness exam assesses your physical, emotional, and mental well-being without performing an actual physical exam or diagnostic testing.

The annual physical is a comprehensive head-to-toe evaluation of all your body systems and includes diagnostic testing to screen for health issues like cancer and diabetes. 

Annual wellness exams are a no-cost service for patients with Medicare Part B coverage. It’s a preventive exam.  

Who needs annual wellness exams?

Everyone benefits from an annual wellness exam. It’s especially beneficial for those who feel good and have no known health problems. The annual wellness exam focuses on helping you maintain your good health. 

Medicare patients also benefit from the annual wellness exam to establish baseline health parameters and develop a personalized health prevention plan. The Medicare annual wellness exam isn’t a replacement for your annual physical exam.

What happens during annual wellness exams?

The annual wellness exam at New Wave Physicians Group is a general overview of your current health, helping establish a plan for your future health needs. During your annual wellness exam, your provider:

  • Documents your height and weight
  • Checks blood pressure and heart rate
  • Reviews your medical and family history
  • Creates a list of all the prescription medications and supplements you take
  • Compiles a list of all your health care providers
  • Assesses cognitive and emotional well-being

Your provider also talks to you about your health assessment and provides guidance on lifestyle changes to improve or maintain health. They may also talk to you about your treatment options.

New Wave Physicians Group updates your prevention plan and makes recommendations for health screenings. 

New Wave Physicians Group recommends you come in every 12 months for your annual wellness exam so they can assess your health and update your prevention plan.
