Impact of Medicare annual wellness visits on uptake of depression screening.
This study assessed whether patients with an initial annual wellness visit (AWV) were more likely to be screened for depression than those with a primary care visit. Fifteen percent of patients with non-AWVs and 10 percent of patients with AWVs received depression screening. After accounting for clustering, there was no statistically significant difference in depression screening by visit type.
