About Hal Livingston, Founder of Lister Healthcare
Hal Livingston graduated from the University of Alabama in 1970 with a degree in Education. After teaching for 2 years, he returned to school and retrained to be a Respiratory Therapist. Subsequently, he became the Director of Respiratory Services at Decatur General Hospital. After a year and a half, he came to the Shoals and formed one of the first Lister Healthcare companies.
“Every morning when I get up and go to work, I want the patients to receive the highest quality of care in the clinics and laboratories that are under the Lister Healthcare umbrella.” ---Hal Livingston

In-between visit care management is finally here!
Medicare's new Chronic Care Management program can help people get more goal-directed, coordinated care.
What is Chronic Care Management?
It is a new Medicare benefit that provides people with multiple chronic conditions additional support. At the center of the program is a comprehensive care plan, developed in collaboration with your health care team (doctor, nurse practitioner, nurses, staff), and updated monthly. Enhanced care coordination, a focus on your goals and quality of life in context of your conditions are a focus of the program. Medicare recently made the program more accessible to patients.
As part of Medicare's goal to help people receive more goal directed, holistic care planning and in-between visit care, it launched a brand new, exciting program. The program can help your doctor and practice staff provide you a comprehensive care plan and enhanced engagement with your care. People participating in the program often mention that they feel more connected to their healthcare and that they may receive more coordinated, goal-oriented care.
CCM could be right for you.
Ask your healthcare providers if you are a candidate for the program. If you have two or more chronic conditions, you may be eligible.
CCM partners with your care team.
We love helping people receive quality in-between visit care management. We partner with patients and providers in a collaborative, efficient, and fun way.

Have you had your Annual Wellness Visit?
Medicare now covers an annual wellness visit with your physician at no cost to you whether you are enrolled in original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan! This visit is an opportunity for you and your doctor to develop a personalized prevention plan that takes a comprehensive approach to improving your health and preventing disease. This means that you and your doctor can develop a strategy together to help manage your health care.
The annual wellness visit benefit includes the following services:
- Routine measurements, such as your height, weight, blood pressure, and body mass index (BMI)
- Review of your individual medical and family history
- Review of the medications, supplements, and vitamins that you are currently taking
- Discussion of the care you are currently receiving from other health care providers
- Review of your functional ability and level of safety (for example, your risk of falling at home), including any cognitive impairment, as well as a screening for depression
- Discussion of personalized health advice that takes into account your risk factors and specific health conditions or needs, including weight loss, physical activity, smoking cessation, fall prevention, and nutrition
- Discussion of referrals to other appropriate health education or preventive counseling services that may help you minimize or treat potential health risks
- Planning a schedule for the Medicare screening and preventive services you will need over the next five to 10 years.
Although the annual wellness visit is not the same thing as an annual physical exam, it provides you with the same opportunity to talk with your doctor about your health concerns. After your initial annual wellness visit, you are eligible for a follow-up or subsequent wellness visit every 12 months. The annual wellness visits are not subject to Medicare Part B deductibles, co-insurance, or copayments, which means that there is no expense to you.
