When is a beneficiary eligible for the Annual Wellness Visit?

Answer: Medicare provides coverage of an Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) for a beneficiary who is no longer within 12 months after the effective date of his or her first Medicare Part B coverage period and who has not received either an Initial Preventive Physical Exam (IPPE) or an AWV within the past 12 months. Medicare pays for only one "first" AWV per beneficiary per lifetime, and pays for one "subsequent" AWV per year thereafter.
