Here’s another myth that I can offer some peace of mind about. There are quite a few preventative services that are specific to children’s healthcare. And many of these services won’t charge a copayment or require coinsurance. Just be sure to double-check this with your plan provider before making an appointment.
Autism screening and other behavioral assessments
Phenylketonuria (PKU) screening
Sexually transmitted infection (STI) prevention counseling and screening
Obesity screening and counseling
Oral health risk assessment
As you can see the services available for children are well-rounded. Some of these services are for specific age groups. Check with your plan provider and then make the appointment to actively participant in your children’s health.
