What Is a Well-Check Exam?

Texas Minimum State Vaccine Requirements for Students Grades K-12

Taking your child to the Pediatrician or Family Doctor when he or she is healthy is just as important as taking your child to the doctor when he or she is ill. A well-check exam, also known as a well-care, well-baby, or well-child visit focuses on maintaining your child’s health and is a time to discuss preventive care. These exams are available to patients from kindergarten through 12th grade.

  • What The Doctor Will Cover

    Well-check visits are routine visits to the child's doctor for the following reasons:

    • Physical examinations
    • Immunization updates
    • Tracking growth and development
    • Finding any problems before they become serious
    • Information on health and safety issues
    • Information on nutrition and physical fitness
    • Information on how to manage emergencies and illnesses

    Your child's doctor can also provide guidance on other issues, such as the following:

    • Behavioral problems
    • Learning problems
    • Emotional problems
    • Family problems
    • Socialization problems
    • Puberty and concerns about teenage years
  • What to Bring

    Here is a well-check checklist to remind you what to bring to your child’s appointment:

    • Health insurance information
    • Updated shot record
    • Camp/sports forms – your child’s doctor can fill these out as well
    • Patients must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian
  • Know Your Benefits

    Please be aware that your health insurance may not consider discussion of additional diagnoses or significant problems as part of your child’s well-check exam, which will focus primarily on preventive treatment. Discussing additional issues or symptoms of another medical condition in a preventive well-check exam can create a new visit fee and may result in additional charges or additional co-pay depending on your health insurance plan. For more information, please see our preventive visit policy. Questions about your benefits should be directed to your insurance plan or your employer’s Human Resources department.
