Annual Wellness Visit Guide and Form
We have resources to help you document our members’ annual wellness visits. These resources are for your optional use only to help track your progress on meeting Medicare wellness visits requirements. You don’t need to return anything to us.
- Our Annual Wellness Visit Guide has a wellness visit checklist and information on coverage, coding, preventive services and closing gaps in care.
- Our Annual Wellness Visit form includes sections for members’ medical history, risk factors, conditions, treatment options, coordination of care and advance care planning. You may find it helpful to fill out this form during wellness visits.
Wellness visits provide opportunities to screen for health conditions and manage chronic ones. Please remind our members to schedule a visit this year if they haven’t already.
