If you’re on Medicare and have Medicare Part B, it’s time to take advantage of an important free service Grady offers: the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit.
What’s a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit?
Medicare’s Annual Wellness Visit is a time to meet with your primary care doctor, talk about how you’re doing physically and emotionally, discuss screenings, vaccinations, blood tests, and other diagnostic exams, and plan how best to monitor your health.
This visit is more valuable than annual physicals because it gives you and your doctor a chance to discuss how you’re feeling and what’s important to you – not just specific aches or illnesses.
Then, you and your provider create a written screening schedule or checklist for you to follow.
It’s Covered By Medicare!
Medicare Part B covers the cost of your Medicare Annual Wellness Visit if:
- You have had Part B for longer than 12 months.
- And you have not received an AWV in the past 12 months.
- You cannot receive your AWV in the same year as your Welcome to Medicare preventive visit.
You pay nothing for a Medicare Annual Wellness Visit at Grady, and there’s no Part B deductible.

Every body needs a tune-up from time to time. This is your chance to work with your provider and create a personalized prevention plan just for you!
