June 25th, 2015

The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) amended the definition of “Preventive Services” available in Medicare and included two additional preventive physical examination services: the initial preventive physical examination (IPPE) and the annual wellness visit (AWV).

The definition of preventive services and the corresponding table of services are reflective of preventive services available in Medicare as of January 1, 2011.
