Regular exams

In order to provide the absolute best health services for your child, you should bring them in for regular EPSDT check-ups. These appointments are necessary, even when your child is feeling well, to ensure their optimum health. Examinations should take place at 2 weeks, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 2 years, and then every year until they are 21 years old.

What to expect

Your child's exam will be given by your doctor, a physician assistant, or a nurse practitioner. They will check the overall physical condition of your child to ensure they are growing well. A thorough check of their ears, eyes, and diet is also included, as well as childhood immunizations and lab tests, such as hemoglobin, urine, TB test (if needed), and blood lead screening.
