Why It Matters
This measure assesses whether adult health plan members had a preventive or ambulatory visit to their physician. Health care visits are an opportunity for individuals to receive preventive services and counseling on topics such as diet and exercise. These visits also can help them to address acute issues or manage chronic conditions.
