At the grand opening of MDPrevent, Richard Wild, MD, JD, MBA, FACEP, Chief Medical Officer from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Regional Office in Atlanta, addressed a group of 150 discussing a number of new changes to Medicare that reflect the federal government’s new commitment to disease prevention.

“The goal is to keep people healthy, instead of treating disease,” said Wild of the new direction. “In the long run, it is less expensive and promotes better quality of life for our seniors.”

In late November, CMS announced several new disease prevention services for Medicare recipients that are completely covered and not subject to deductibles or co-payments for depression screening, obesity screening and behavioral therapy, cardiovascular disease, behavioral therapy, alcohol screening and counseling, and smoking cessation.

Wild also touched on the Affordable Healthcare Act which, effective January 1, 2011 began covering an Annual Wellness Visit for Medicare patients. The following services are covered:

• Record and evaluate medical and family history, current health conditions, and prescriptions and supplements;
• Check blood pressure, weight, and height to get a baseline assessment of the patient;
• Make sure preventive screenings and services such as cancer screenings and shots are up-to-date;
• Order further tests, depending on patient’s general health and medical history;
• Create a 5-10 year disease prevention plan.

“A giant step has been taken to address the health issues that lead to preventable chronic diseases,” said Steven Charlap, MD, MBA, Chief Service Officer of MDPrevent. “This is exactly what the government ought to be supportive of – efforts to bring down healthcare costs while ensuring the highest quality of care for our seniors.”

Other esteemed guests at the opening were Congressman Ted Deutch, Delray Beach Mayor Nelson S. “Woodie” McDuffie, Jeff Welch, COO of the Delray Medical Center and Jared Smith, Director of Business Development of the Delray Medical Center.

MDPrevent (mdprevent.net) is a new primary care, preventative medicine and education center that focus on disease prevention and weight loss. The goal is to improve aging and well-being by identifying, preventing, delaying or mitigating the development of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s and some forms of cancer.
