Your Guide to Your Annual Wellness Visit


In recent years, health care has been focused on pre­ven­tive med­i­cine. Pre­ven­tive med­i­cine empha­sizes the pro­mo­tion of a healthy lifestyle and proac­tive­ly mon­i­tor­ing for var­i­ous health con­di­tions includ­ing hyper­ten­sion, dia­betes or can­cers. To sup­port these efforts, most com­mer­cial insur­ance providers now cov­er the cost of an annu­al well­ness exam pro­vid­ed by an in-net­work provider*. Pre­ven­tive med­ical care is impor­tant because it pro­vides you and your care team with an oppor­tu­ni­ty to assess your cur­rent health, which can be use­ful for antic­i­pat­ing future health care needs.
