The Annual Wellness Visit is a yearly appointment for Medicare patients to discuss their plan of preventive care for the coming year.

The AWV is NOT a routine visit in which a physical examination and treatment of conditions is performed. The AWV can be conducted (and billed for) in conjunction with a routine visit to avoid scheduling a separate appointment to address conditions that require attention.
