Even after your big kid has long grown out of those frequent “well-baby” visits, it’s still important to make sure your child is getting annual checkups for preventive care.
These visits are important during the elementary school years when you need to stay up-to-date on immunizations, vision and hearing screenings, and other requirements for school enrollment.
And as your child gets older, he or she can be an active participant in their own checkups. Your pediatrician can talk directly with your child about healthy eating, exercise, and everyday safety. Building this kind of positive, regular relationship with a doctor builds healthy habits for life.
The other good news is that preventive care, like well-child visits, are covered at 100%.
