Healthy habits to keep your child healthy
A new school year will start soon. Schools require that all shots be up-to-date before the first day of school. With our Kids First Rewards program, your child can be rewarded for going to the doctor and getting his or her shots!
Teens and young adults need immunizations, too! Each year children, teens and young adults ages 4 to 21 should visit their doctor or PCP to have a yearly well visit. For members under the age of 21 years, this well visit is called a Healthchek exam.
What is EPSDT?
