Annual Wellness Visits


Cheyenne County Clinic offers Annual Wellness Visits. This visit is an opportunity for your health care provider to work with you for prevention and early detection of illness. You are eligible to receive this benefit at no cost to you once a year.

What is a Wellness Visit?

  • A review of your medical and family history
  • A complete list of your current providers and prescriptions
  • Height, weight, blood pressure, and other routine measurements
  • Screening for cognitive impairment
  • Personalized health advice
  • A list of risk factors and treatment options for you
  • A screening schedule (like a checklist) for appropriate preventative services

Your health care team will provide you with information and referrals to maintain your health as well as build your personal prevention plan that will guide your care for the next five to ten years. The benefit of having the Annual Wellness Visit every year is that we can monitor your progress and identify early changes in your health to prevent disease. Please note that this is different from a yearly physical checkup and no physical exam, labs, or other testing will be done.

Who pays for this this Wellness Visit?

Medicare covers the full amount of this service. You will not be responsible for a co-pay. However, the doctor or care manager may recommend follow up doctor visits that may require a copayment.

How do I schedule my Annual Wellness Visit?

When you call our office, please tell the staff that you would like to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.

  • A few days before your appointment, a member of our healthcare staff will call you to complete a medical history and screening questionnaires. If possible, please be prepared with the following information:
    • A list of your current medical providers and suppliers (i.e. specialists, pharmacy, medical equipment suppliers, etc.)
    • Current medical problems
    • Past medical history, surgical history, immunization history, family history, social history
    • Current medications and allergies

Cheyenne County Clinic strives to be your choice for primary care.   Call the St. Francis Clinic at (785) 332-2682 or the Bird City Clinic at (785) 734-2306 to schedule your appointment today.
