Children grow and change quickly. Seeing a doctor regularly can help you or your child stay healthy. These visits are called well-child checkups. You don’t have to wait until you’re sick to make an appointment with a primary care provider (PCP). And since it’s for preventive care, there’s no extra cost.


Members can get well-child checkups from birth through age 20. During a well-child checkup, the PCP will:


  • Do a complete physical exam
  • Check the member’s growth and nutrition
  • Check the member’s vision, hearing and teeth
  • Give shots as needed
  • Order lab work, like blood tests, as needed
  • Answer any questions the member might have
  • Find any health problems before they become serious
  • Get to know the member so they can take better care of them


When should you schedule a well-child checkup?


For more info, see the schedule of well-child checkups recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics.


Immunizations (shots) are a covered benefit that can help keep children healthy. They can protect them against serious diseases, like whooping cough and measles. Members should get their shots during their well-child checkup.

When is a child due for their shot?
