What's the difference between an annual physical and wellness visit?

Physical exams require a physical exam appointment and are a review of vitals and current medication, as well as family and personal history review.

Annual wellness visits are a free benefit for Medicare patients. They are an interview style appointment with a personalized prevention plan that includes a review of vitals and current medications.

These wellness visits play an important role in maintaining or improving your health.
