Annual visits are related to increased use of preventive care. Even though majority of preventive care is provided outside of the annual visits, relationship between annual visits and use of preventive care is not known. In such a scenario, is it not possible that deemphasizing annual visits leads to a decrease in importance of preventive care in people and subsequently in decreased utilization of preventive care? This may lead to increase in disease burden and, therefore, cost of health care. Further, if prevention is delegated to someone other than physician, will its perceived importance for the patients reduce?
