Back-to-School Well-Child Exams

Beat the back-to-school rush! Houston schools start as early as August 12.

Don’t wait; call to schedule your children’s back-to-school check-ups and sports physicals today.

Back-to-school well-child exams are covered by Medicaid.

Immunizations, sports physicals, and more are included!

There is usually no cost for annual well-child exams

Well-check exams are covered by Medicaid/CHIP and most insurance plans. That means no cost to parents. If you don’t have insurance, we can help! Ask about our Get Care program.

Well-child exams can include school and sports physicals

Older children who plan to play sports at school usually take care of their sports physical at the same time as their well-check exam. In other words, school and sports physicals, or pre-participation physical evaluation (PPEs), can be included as part of your child’s well-check visit. 

Well-child exams include immunizations

Your children will receive all the recommended immunizations for their age at the well-check exam visit.

Well-child exams include screenings for developmental milestones

The doctor will talk and play with your child during the well-check exam. It is part of the developmental milestone screening to determine whether children are learning and growing like other children their age or whether they need a little extra help. If your child needs help, your doctor will get you the needed services.

Well-child exams are an excellent time to talk with your child's doctor

During your child’s checkup, you’ll have a chance to speak to the doctor about any concerns or questions you may have about your child’s health and development.
