GET CARE TODAY
Presbyterian Health Plan is committed to helping you find the right care, at the right place, and at the right time. Before you go to the emergency room, you have options.
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.
Online Health Information about Children
Adult preventive care includes regular visits with your provider. These visits may include:
A review of your medical, social and behavioral health history.
Tests and screenings (blood pressure, weight, depression, cancer, infections, intimate partner abuse, osteoporosis, etc.).
Counseling or referrals for unhealthy alcohol use, substance use, tobacco cessation, depression, healthy weight, healthy activity, etc.
Online Health Information about Adults
See your provider as soon as you think you might be pregnant. Preventive care can help you have a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. You will need to see your provider often during your pregnancy. They will tell you how often you should get care after your first visit.
Online Health Information about Pregnancy
An advance directive is a legal document informing others of your healthcare choices. It explains what medical support you want, or do not want, if you become seriously ill. It is only used when you are not able to speak for yourself.
