Kids and Teens Need Regular Checkups to Stay Healthy

It's important for kids and teens to regularly see their primary care physician (PCP) for preventive care to stay healthy. Even if your child doesn't feel sick, their PCP can offer screenings to make sure they are healthy – and to keep them that way. A complete history, physical exam, and health education are part of a well-child checkup. Depending on the child’s age, a well-child checkup may also include:

  • Vision Screening

  • Hearing Screening

  • Developmental and Behavioral Health Assessments or Screenings

  • Blood Tests (for example, Lead Screening)

  • Oral Health Screening

How Frequently?

Children should see their PCP for full physical exams and screenings at these ages:

  • 1 to 2 weeks

  • 1 month 

  • 2 months

  • 4 months

  • 6 months

  • 9 months

  • 12 months

  • 15 months

  • 18 months

  • Ages 2-21 – children should visit their PCP once a year

Children should also go to their PCP any time there is a concern about their health, even if it's not time for a regular checkup. These visits are included in your coverage.
