Well Check-ups vs Sports Physicals

How do you know which one and when to schedule?

Well check-ups are preventative physicals and also cover requirements for school sports physicals.. Your insurance usually covers well check-ups with zero out of pocket to you.  IHSAA/school guidelines need a well check-up or sports physical on or after April 1st.  If you schedule your child’s well check-up after April 1st, this will be good for the entire school year and through summer conditioning.  Our doctors recommend a well check-up every year. 

If your child had a well check-up before April 1st, you can schedule a sports physical which is an abbreviated physical and only covering the sports portion.  We advise you to check with your insurance for coverage on these.
