Preventive health care can help you stay healthier throughout your life. It includes health services like screenings, checkups, and patient counseling. These services are used to prevent illnesses, disease, and other health problems.
Use the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention preventive care resources tool to learn more about preventive care you and your loved ones need. Then, ask your doctor what health care you need to stay healthy.
Facts about well visits
Well-child visits are an important part of staying First Choice Fit. Well visits are checkups that allow the doctor to monitor your child's growth and catch any health problems early. The doctor may also give vision and hearing exams or any needed shots.
Kids need well-visit checkups from infants to young adults, up to age 21. Make sure your child has well visits at these ages:
- From birth to age 2: 3-5 days, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, and 30 months.
- From age 3 through age 21: every year.
Well visits are available at no cost for children 18 and younger at their primary care doctor. Learn more about well-child visits, or call your child's doctor's office to make an appointment today.
