Virginia Beach Wellness Physicals

Annual Wellness Physicals in Virginia Beach

Wellness Physicals

Full Wellness Physicals. Paid Fully by Medicare

If you are on Medicare, you can have yearly wellness physicals or “annual wellness visits" (AMV) to create or update an illness prevention plan. General physicals are different from annual wellness visits for Medicare patients, and AMV does not replace the value provided by a head-to-toe physical exam. Annual wellness visits are covered under Medicare Part B benefits. Your physician will do a wellness check and develop a healthcare plan tailored to your unique needs.

You don’t need a referral from a primary doctor to get wellness physicals at AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach. No appointment is required either. Just walk right in at a time that’s convenient for you. Our clinics have extended morning, evening, and weekend hours.

What Is A Medicare Wellness Physical?

A Medicare Wellness Physical is a personalized prevention plan designed to help prevent disease and disability based on your current health and risk factors. Your provider will ask you to fill out a “Health Risk Assessment” questionnaire as part of this visit. Answering these questions can help you and your AFC Princess Anne Virginia Beach provider develop a personalized prevention plan to help you stay healthy and get the most out of your visit.

What Is Covered Under a Medicare Wellness Physical?

Under Medicare Part B, you are covered for an annual wellness visit/physical once per year, and you will not have to provide a copayment unless additional tests are required that are not covered by Medicare. We will be happy to help you better understand your eligible benefits.

Your Medicare wellness physical will follow a specific set of steps approved by Medicare. As a “wellness” exam, the primary purpose of your physical is to prevent future medical issues by identifying risk factors and warning signs.

Medicare-approved wellness visits include:

  • Review and update medical and family history
  • Review and update a list of current providers
  • Measure height, weight, body mass index (BMI), blood pressure, and other routine measurements
  • Assess for any possible cognitive impairment
  • Review potential risk factors for depression, including current or past experiences with depression or other mood disorders (first Annual Wellness Visit only)
  • Review functional ability and level of safety (first Annual Wellness Visit only)
  • Establish or update a written screening schedule for the individual for the next 5-10 years, based on health status, screening history, and age
  • Prepare a list of risk factors and conditions for which interventions are recommended or are underway for the individual and a list of treatment options and their associated risks and benefits
  • Provide health advice and a referral, as appropriate, to health education or preventive counseling services or programs designed to reduce risk factors, such as for weight loss, smoking cessation, fall prevention, and nutrition.
  • Review of the responses to the Health Risk Assessment
