Traditionally, the CPT codes for Medicare's preventive services such as the Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) have been strongly underutilized by providers. The reason for this is that most providers do not understand the (many) requirements to complete these services, and when done correctly, can be time consuming. But without offering these services, your patients and your practice could be missing out on major benefits. Preventive services like the AWV are paid by Medicare at 100% of their allowable and are not subject to the Medicare deductible or co-insurance.
