PREVENTIVE CARE

Our preventive healthcare guidelines list the regular checkups, screening tests and shots you and your family should have and at what ages you should have them. Preventive healthcare guidelines are based on expert advice from providers for keeping children and adults healthy. Check your member handbook or benefit guide for more information. Below are the links to the most current versions of our preventive healthcare guidelines.

CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENT GUIDELINES

Presbyterian values the health of all children. To be sure your child gets good care, we are part of the Federal Government program called Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT). EPSDT includes Tot-to-Teen Health Checks (routine well-child checkups). Tot-to-Teen Health Checks include immunizations (shots) and other preventive care for children and young people up to age 21. Preventive healthcare and routine well-child checkups may help avoid serious illness.
