Brown Clinic +
Medicare AWV with Chrissy
Medicare Annual Wellness Visits offered in Clark, Big Stone City, Webster, and Watertown

Brown Clinic is taking health care on-the-road with registered nurse, Chrissy Peiker. Beginning March 28, Peiker is making an important Medicare benefit a more convenient option for residents in several communities.

The Annual Wellness Visit is a Medicare available to anyone with a Medicare policy. These yearly appointments are designed to help prevent illness based on current health and risk factors and are important to the maintenance of our overall health. 

The following are examples of preventative services included in an Annual Wellness Visit:
  • Health Risk Assessment – health risks, behavioral risks, and urgent health needs
  • Routine measurements – height, weight, and blood pressure
  • Level of Safety and Functional Ability
  • Depression Screening
  • Medical and Family History
  • Referrals and Advice
The implementation of the Affordable Care Act in 2011 put a strong focus on the importance of preventative health care services. Medicare Annual Wellness Visits address and capitalize on that focus by giving patients time to create a personalized prevention plan with a health care professional, for health education, and to verify the accuracy of provider and medication lists.

The communities of Clark, Big Stone City, Webster, and Watertown will host Peiker at the locations and times below. No appointments are necessary.
