Fam Pract Manag. 2011;18(3):8

Your article “What You Need to Know About the Medicare Preventive Services Expansion” [January/February 2011, ] describes yet another insurance and government “have-to” that makes no sense for me and many others.

The encounter form you created for documenting the requirements of the Medicare annual wellness visit was on my to-do list. I knew that using a form would be the only way to keep track of and comply with the requirements. Your form is easy to use and self-explanatory. Thank you for providing it. You have saved me a lot of work!

Editor's note: You can download the Medicare Preventive Physical Exam encounter form from our web site.
