Wellness Visits Q & A

What is the difference between an annual exam and a wellness visit?

The primary difference lies in the focus of the appointment. Your annual exams at Healing Vessels Medical Associates LLC are focused on screening for signs of a serious health concern.

Wellness visits are focused on identifying your risk level for disease and chronic health issues, and guiding your care to prevent negative health outcomes.

Medicare covers a type of wellness visit for older Americans. These visits include:

  • Gathering basic health data like height, weight, and blood pressure
  • Review of functional ability
  • Screening for cognitive impairment
  • Personal and family health history
  • Developing a screening schedule
  • Advice on education and preventive services

While wellness visits are part of the services available through Medicare, younger men and women should also incorporate these visits into their health care plan.

I’m in good health. Why do I need a wellness exam?

Congratulations! A clean bill of health is something to be celebrated and appreciated.

A wellness exam is a great way to stay on top of your health and continue a fulfilling life, free of disease and chronic health conditions. Ms. Omoregbee customizes your exam according to your specific health needs, and can change it as you move through the stages of life.

For example, a young woman who is thinking about starting a family receive guidance from Ms. Omoregbee on how to enhance fertility and prepare her body for the demands of pregnancy and childbirth. She might also discuss various fitness approaches that can help maintain a healthy weight and support optimal joint health. Ms. Omoregbee can even tell you about the latest diet trends, smoking cessation, and mindfulness practices.

A man nearing retirement will have a completely different set of needs. His visit might focus on the best types of exercise to maintain optimal health without damaging joints. He may discuss ways to maintain healthy sexual function or methods for reducing stress. He might ask questions how to transition into a different pace after retirement.

How can I make the most out of my wellness exam?

Being prepared is the best way to get the greatest value from your wellness exams. Bring a list of all medications and supplements you’re taking, as well as any questions you have.

Your wellness exam is an opportunity to get professional medical advice from Ms. Omoregbee about which tools and approaches can truly enhance your life. You might even learn about options you haven’t heard of, so have an open mind about trying new things to live your best possible life.
