Foster Healthier Patients and Generate More Revenue

Annual Wellness Visit Solutions

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Despite how substantial the ROI is for Annual Wellness Visits in terms of providing value-based care and generating a significant recurring income, less than 20% of physicians are providing it to their patients. This is due to many factors including time constraints, extensive requirements, complex coding and strict guidelines by Medicare.

Being one of the top Annual Wellness Visit outsourcing companies in the industry, Centro Healthcare alleviates these burdens by helping you optimize the health of your patient population while earning CMS-based incentives, through our turnkey Annual Wellness Visit solution addressing the three components of the Annual Wellness Visit: Health risk assessment, doctor consultation, and patient’s personalized prevention plan. Centro’s AWV services will assist you to streamline the scheduling and management of this proactive care opportunity.

Benefits of Outsourcing Annual Wellness Visits

Centro Healthcare helps you fully utilize the benefits of  Annual Wellness Visits as a tool to:

Improve Health Outcomes:

Medicare’s Wellness plan improves health outcomes by identifying patients’ modifiable health risks and providing follow-up behavior change intervention which ultimately helps in keeping patients out of the hospital and long-term care facilities

Improve Patient Engagement:

Centro’s Annual Wellness Visits encourage Medicare patients to continue to routinely see their physician for follow-up care and treatment which leads to enhanced patient outcomes and higher patient satisfaction

Generate Additional Revenue:

Annual Wellness Visit services generate significant revenue that can add up to an average of an extra $500 a year for each Medicare patient, so if your practice has over 250 eligible Medicare patients you could generate over $125,000 of extra revenue
