Child preventive health services

Healthy children grow to be healthy adults

First Choice wants parents to make sure their children are getting regular medical check-ups. These regular check-ups are called well-child visits. Well-child visits are important for all children from birth to age 21. Well-child visits are available at no cost to members. Call your child's PCP office to make an appointment. When you call, tell them that your child is a First Choice member.

What to expect at your child's well visit

Well-visits include:

  • Eye and hearing tests
  • Blood pressure check
  • Dental checkup
  • Any needed shots (immunizations)
  • Any needed lab tests
  • A check for proper growth and development
  • Advice about growth progress

If you need help or have problems making your appointment, call First Choice Member Services at 1-888-276-2020.
