Billing For Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV)

Medicare pays a physician for an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) service. This visit is planned to develop or update a Personalized Prevention Plan (PPP) and perform a Health Risk Assessment (HRA) which is covered once every 12 months by Medicare. Medicare covers an AWV for all patients who aren’t within 12 months after the eligibility date for their first Medicare Part B benefit period and who didn’t have an IPPE or an AWV within the past 12 months.
