Well child exam / Physicals for children

Regularly scheduled checkups, called well-child visits, play a vital role in your child’s healthy development. It’s easy to skip visits to the doctor if your child appears to be happy and healthy, but you might not see potential problems that are correctable when caught early. A well child exam involves assessing and tracking physical growth and cognitive development

  • Discussing any health concerns or behavioral health issues
  • Performing pediatric immunizations that are due
  • Performing hearing and vision screening tests
  • Screening for blood disorders
  • Providing safety recommendations
  • Discussing healthy habits
  • Completing required sports physicals
Sports physicals

Known as pre-participation exams (PPE,) this exam might be required by your child’s school before they are cleared for play. Unlike a normal physical, sports physicals are used to assess if your child is healthy enough to participate in sports as well as helping reduce the risk of future sports-related injuries.

Medicare exams

As a Medicare-Part B enrollee, you receive a free Annual Wellness Visit each calendar year that keeps you up-to-date on immunizations, preventive services and more. These yearly screenings are important because they may catch potential problems before they become serious. 

Your Medicare Wellness visit is more than a physical.  It includes immunizations and boosters, and referrals for additional test or services, if needed.  At your first Medicare Wellness Visit (otherwise known as Initial Preventative Physical Exam (IPPE), your NGPG provider will review your medical history and help you develop a personalized wellness plan based on your current health, lifestyle and risk factors to help you manage your health and prevent disease. During this exam, your provider will:

  • Measure your height, weight, blood pressure and body mass index (BMI)
  • Review your medical, surgical, social history (such as alcohol, tobacco and drug use) and family history
  • Review your current prescribed and over-the-counter medications
  • Perform a basic vision and hearing test
  • Perform a basic depression and cognitive screening test
  • Complete a health risk and safety assessment
  • Discuss end-of-life planning
  • Plan a list of recommended future preventive screenings and services
  • Discuss referrals for services or programs to help minimize or treat potential health risks

**If you need to discuss your chronic medical problems or other time sensitive medical issues during your Annual Wellness Visit, Medicare requires that we collect an additional payment for that service when it occurs
