Insurance and Your Annual Exam
Your Annual Wellness Exam
Your covered services for annual wellness exams may have changed due to the Affordable Care Act.
An annual wellness visit is a general check-up designed to keep patients on a healthy path and to identify any health issues early or prevent them all together.
An Annual Exam includes:
- General physical exam
- Pelvic and Breast exam
- Review of past, social and family history
- Review of current medications, including birth control
- Evaluation of need for health screening tests
- Review of immunizations
- Pap Smear
- Vitamin D
If you do not want routine labs please inform the provider at the time of your visit.
An annual exam visit does not include a discussion of new problems or detailed review of chronic or new conditions. If you are experiencing a specific problem, or would like to establish a care treatment plan for a chronic condition, then we will set up a separate appointment with you so we are able to devote the proper amount of time to any new or specific health problems you may be experiencing.
