Have you scheduled an annual wellness visit yet? Annual wellness visits are a crucial part of one’s overall health, as they provide you and your doctor with important information.

Here are just a few of the many reasons you should schedule one:

  • It can help catch health problems early on. 
  • It helps keep your records current. 
  • It provides you with a healthcare plan. 

To prepare for this visit, be sure to round up medical records, family health history and medication lists as well as any other information you think your doctor should know.

You should also fill out a Personal Health Assessment, which can show you which areas of your health need improvement. Have questions? Contact AvMed’s Member Engagement Center at the number listed on your AvMed Member ID Card, Monday–Friday, 8 am–8 pm; Saturday, 9 am–1 pm.
