Chronic Care Management

The Chronic Care Management Program at Collingsworth Family Medicine was established to help Medicare patients with diabetes, arthritis, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and other chronic conditions to play a more active and effective role in the management of their health.

Wendy Lankford, LVN, a certified Clinic Health Coach, meets with each patient enrolled in the program to talk about their health care needs, concerns and goals.  Together, Langford and the patient will develop an individualized plan to accomplish these goals, and will monitor progress over time, making adjustments to the plan as needed.

If you have a chronic condition, and would like to join the health improvement team, call 806-447-5311 to schedule an Annual Wellness Visit with your primary care provider to discuss enrollment. Wendy cal also be reached at the same number to answer any other questions you may have about the program.

Coaching services provided by Wendy are offered free-of-charge to eligible Medicare patients.

Medicare Wellness Visits

If you are covered by Medicare, you are eligible for a free Annual Medicare Wellness Visit to talk with your provider about ways to improve your health and prevent disease.  The Annual Wellness Visit is not the same as an annual physical exam, but it does provide patients with the same opportunity to talk with their provider about health concerns and to develop a plan in partnership with those providers to focus on health, rather than illness. 

Some of the services covered during an Annual Wellness Visit include:  routine measurements such as weight, height and blood pressure; review of your individual and family medical history, review of your current medications, discussion of the care you receive from other providers, and review of your functional ability and level of safety.  Based on this review, you and your provider will develop a health promotion and disease prevention plan based on your specific needs.

After your initial wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months.  These visits are not subject to copayments to deductibles, so there is no cost to the individual. Collingsworth Family Medicine at 806-447-5311 to schedule your Annual Wellness Visit.

Monday – Friday: 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
