Wellness Center

What is the Wellness Center?

With the ever-changing health care climate and added regulations under the Affordable Care Act, it is important for us to explore methods that maximize efficiency. Physicians cannot do it alone and must collaborate with the entire medical team to continuously improve and refine our practice model and Clinic workflows. The Christie Clinic Wellness Center was designed to create a comfortable “at-home” atmosphere for our patients so we provide the Annual Wellness Visits that our Medicare Insurance covered patients are entitled to receive.

What is the Annual Wellness Visit?

The Welcome to Medicare Visit and Annual Wellness Visits are designed to review the patient’s wellness and develop a plan to keep the patient healthy. The goals of these visits are health promotion and disease prevention and detection. Early detection of symptoms can prevent advancement of the disease process that lead to long term chronic diseases and additional complications. Information obtained in the Wellness Visit will be shared with your physician.

But I feel great!

A Wellness Visit is different from other visits. There is real advantage to engaging you, the patient, in ongoing management of your health. Our goal is to provide education on building your skills necessary to integrate health management into your day-to-day routines.

Who pays for it?

Medicare pays for the Annual Wellness Visits. Additional screenings may be ordered if deemed medically necessary.

Do I need to fill out paperwork?

Once you have scheduled your Wellness Visit, we will mail you a Health Risk Assessment questionnaire to complete and ask that you bring it to your appointment. The Health Risk Assessment is a survey of how you feel about your health and is important information to develop goals to meet your future health care needs.

What do I bring?

  • A list of all of your medicines and dosages including over-the-counter medications, vitamins and herbal supplements.
  • If you have a Living Will or Advance Directive, please bring a copy for our records.
  • Please bring the completed Health Risk Assessment Form. If you are having trouble completing it, don’t worry. If you can arrive 15 minutes prior to the time of your appointment, we will be happy to help you complete the form.

Please call 217.366.2640 to schedule your wellness visit soon.

We look forward to seeing you!
