Get on the ball during March Madness and schedule your Annual Wellness.

About Your Annual Wellness.

Your annual preventive health exam, also known as your well visit or annual physical, is important. This check-up is a wonderful opportunity to prioritize your well-being, ensuring we catch any potential health concerns early on, before they have a chance to escalate.

Think of it as a dedicated time to focus on your wellness journey, guided by your trusted primary care physician. Together, we’ll navigate through important screening tests, vaccinations, and other essential health assessments tailored to your needs.

The best part? Most insurance plans generously cover your annual wellness exam, without requiring a copay. It’s our way of making sure you have access to the care you deserve.

We understand that the array of components involved in a wellness visit might seem overwhelming, but fret not—we’re here to guide you every step of the way. Here are some tips to help prepare for your visit.

What if I need to ask my doctor about a specific medical issue?
If you have a specific medical concern to discuss with your doctor, it’s considered part of a follow-up or “sick” visit. These visits may involve copayments, coinsurance, or deductible payments, depending on your insurance policy. If you wish to address concerns during your wellness visit, please inform us when scheduling your appointment. If time allows after completing the wellness portion of your visit, we can address these concerns, as well.

A Follow-up or “sick” visit may include;

  • Treatment of chronic conditions like diabetes, asthma, or high blood pressure
  • Addressing new problems or complaints
  • New prescription medications or refills
  • Lab or imaging tests
  • Referrals to specialists
  • Exploring additional treatment options

What are the most important points I need to keep in mind?
Review your insurance plan’s summary of benefits before your appointment to understand what your insurance company will or will not cover.

When scheduling a wellness visit, clearly state that you would like to make an appointment for your annual wellness or preventive care exam. This will help the clinic prepare for your visit and bill your insurance company appropriately.

When you check in for your appointment on the day of your visit, you will again have the opportunity to inform us if you have any concerns you would like to address.  Again, anticipate that you may be asked to schedule a separate appointment for this.  Our goal is to address your preventative care to keep you as healthy as possible!
