What your doctor calls your visit can cost you.

Annual Wellness or Preventive Care Visit?

How your visit is coded by your physician’s office may mean the difference between your claim being covered or denied.
If you have Medicare Part B for longer than 12 months, you can get an annual wellness visit or update a personalized prevention plan on your current health and risk factors. 

This visit is covered once every 12 months.
Be sure your doctor codes it as an Annual Wellness Visit not a preventive visit to avoid any mix-ups or your claim being denied.
