Medicare Now Provides Coverage for an Annual Wellness Visit and the Initial Preventive Physical Examination

Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicare beneficiaries may now receive coverage for an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV), which is a yearly office visit that focuses on preventive health.

In addition to the new AWV, Medicare also provides coverage for the Initial Preventive Physical Examination (IPPE), commonly known as the “Welcome to Medicare” Visit (WMV).
