Medicare Annual Wellness Visit - Learning Modules

Wyoming Primary Care Association is pleased to be working with the Wyoming Center on Aging at the University of Wyoming on an effort to encourage more seniors to take advantage of their Annual Wellness Visit (AWV).   The Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) is a yearly appointment with your primary care provider (PCP) to create or update a personalized prevention plan. This plan may help prevent illness based on your current health and risk factors. Keep in mind that the AWV is not a head-to-toe physical. Also, this service is similar to but separate from the one-time Welcome to Medicare preventive visit.
