Well Child Visits

These visits are free for enrolled members under 21 years of age.

These include screenings needed for your child’s PCP to understand any medical needs.  During these visits the PCP will complete a physical exam and a complete health and developmental history.  Vaccines (shots) are part of these visits.

Ask your child’s PCP when you should bring your child back for the next EPSDT checkup.
