It’s important to see your primary care provider (PCP) at least once every year for a wellness visit to develop a personalized prevention plan, even if you’re not sick. This is a good time to build a relationship with your PCP so that they will know your health history when you need to see them for sickness or other problems.
What can I expect at the Annual Wellness Visit?
The Annual Wellness Visit is time with your PCP to develop or update a personalized prevention plan based on your current health and risk factors. It also includes a review of your health, as well as education and counseling about the preventive services you need including: certain screenings, shots, possible medications, and referrals for other care, if needed.
It can also include:
• A review of your medical and family history
• Updating a list of current providers and prescriptions
• Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements
• Detection of any cognitive impairment and functional status
• A pain assessment
• Personalized health advice
• A screening schedule for appropriate preventive services
• Advanced Care Planning
