Common Wellness/Physical

Exam Questions

Is my Wellness/Physical covered by my insurance?
Most insurance plans that are approved by the Affordable Care Act cover a Wellness Visit/Physical Exam every 12 months.  These visits and labs are typically covered by insurance with no out-of-pocket cost for patients.  You can call your insurance plan and ask if wellness visits are covered with no out of pocket to you every twelve months.  Manhattan Primary Care will use the ICD-10 diagnosis code Z00.00.

Will labs be covered at no out-of-pocket expense?
You can check with your insurance carrier by asking: “Are the following lab tests covered at no out of pocket cost to me if billed with corresponding ICD – 10 code:  CBC (CPT Code 85025, ICD-10 Code Z00.00); Complete Metabolic Panel (CPT Code 80053, ICD-10 Code Z13.1), Lipid Panel (CPT Code 80061, ICD-10 Code Z13.220); and Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) (CPT Code 84443, ICD-10 Code Z13.29)?”

What is included in a physical?
Physicals include a review of the entire history, review of wellness measures such as vaccines, colonoscopy, exercise, nutrition, weight management, blood pressure check, and review other lab screening recommendations such as HIV testing or Hepatitis C screening.  You and your medical provider will discuss pap smear, breast exam, mammogram and birth control options with female patients.  Prostate cancer screening and men’s health screenings will be discussed with male patients.
