What is the difference between a routine office visit, a physical and a Medicare Advantage Health Risk Assessment?
A routine office visit is an appointment that is used for most acute and chronic medical problems. Most acute illnesses and chronic medical conditions can be addressed during these visits. Patients with a large number of physical complaints or chronic illnesses may be asked to schedule additional routine office visits if there is not enough time to address all of their current problems.
An appointment for a physical, or recommended periodic preventive exam, includes a physical exam based on an individual’s medical history. Based on the patient’s age, the physical may also include the following:
A Medicare Advantage Health Risk Assessment is for adults ages 65+ and all patients enrolled in TexanPlus OR KelseyCare Advantage (regardless of age) who need a physical. Please do not select a regular physical. The Medicare Advantage Health Risk Assessment is longer in duration than a physical and includes an age-specific health maintenance evaluation and counseling along with the physical exam.
If you are 65 and over or are enrolled in the TexanPlus or KelseyCare Advantage health plans, you should select a Health Risk Assessment instead of a physical.
You should only select a Health Risk Assessment if you are 65 and over or enrolled in TexanPlus or KelseyCare Advantage. Otherwise, select a physical.
