Give your child a healthy start
Starting healthy habits early is important for your child’s development from birth to age 12. Scheduling regular doctor visits, vaccinations, tests, and routine dental exams can help keep your child in good health when they are young.
Knowing what services your health plan covers is important. Making sure your child is up to date on their shots can help keep them from getting sick.
We are here to guide you and answer any questions you may have about your health plan so you can get the care your child needs.
Here are a few things to consider for your child:
- Choose a pediatric doctor and dentist. Starting and keeping a relationship with your child’s doctor and dentist is important for their overall health and development.
- Book regular physical exams. These visits may include talking to their pediatrician about important topics such as physical, social and emotional development, getting caught up on their vaccines, healthy eating and exercise.
- Schedule dental visits. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that by age one or within six months after your child’s first tooth comes in, they should start to have regular dental checkups. These visits may include a cleaning, sealants, fluoride and X-rays.
