FAQ

What is an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV)?

Beginning January 1, 2011, the Affordable Care Act made available an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) providing Personalized Prevention Plan Services (PPPS). The AWV includes a Health Risk Assessment (HRA). These are useful tools in targeting areas providers would never address.

Who is eligible for an AWV?

All people with Medicare are covered. Medicare beneficiaries who have been on Medicare Part B coverage for more than 12 months are eligible for the AWV. Beneficiaries who are within the first 12 months of the effective date of coverage are eligible for the IPPE or “Welcome to Medicare” exam.

Who can perform an AWV?

A physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, clinical nurse specialist, medical professional (including a health educator, a registered dietitian, nutrition professional, or other licensed practitioner) or a team of such medical professionals working under the direct supervision of a physician.

Why should our practice offer the AWV?

In addition to providing better patient care and generating a significant recurring income, the AWV will dramatically increase utilization of other Medicare Preventative Services by getting Medicare patients into the office.

Why is the AWV not better utilized?

The components that CMS has put into place as the framework for the AWV are complicated and confusing. The AWV is costly and time consuming when completed with paper and staff hours. The Core Care Wellness solution simplifies the process and assures compliance with all elements of the AWV.

What is Core Care Wellness?

Our turnkey solution offers the necessary tools to complete an AWV from beginning to end. It typically takes one afternoon for implementation and training, and the following morning to model procedure with patients. We utilize your secured Wi-Fi or provide your practice with a wireless router if needed, while a hand-held device enables our system to ensure delivery of your patient’s AWV. Core Care Wellness comes complete with a Health Risk Assessment, Provider Consultation, and Personal Prevention Plan.

Is Core Care Wellness HIPAA compliant?

Yes, the Core Care Wellness app transmits on a dedicated secure internet connection and is HIPAA compliant, so you don’t have to worry about security and compliance issues.

The Annual Wellness Visit

As part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) the goals of the AWV are to:

  • Establishment of a written screening schedule for next 5-10 years
  • Identify a list of risk factors
  • Offer advice for overall wellness and health in coming year
  • Provide referrals to health education and preventative counseling
