Preventive Health
(Initial Health Assessment - First Health Checkup)

You need to make an appointment for your first health checkup as soon as possible if you are a Care1st member. You will receive a complete physical during your first health checkup. This checkup will help your doctor get to know you better. This is important since your doctor is your partner in your health. At your appointment, your doctor will ask you to answer a questionnaire called the "Staying Healthy Assessment." It will help your doctor provide you with complete care.

Preventive Health Guidelines

We want you and your family to stay healthy. Regular checkups, even when you are not sick, are important to maintain your health. They also help your doctor identify health problems early on. Preventive health guidelines below show you when you need your regular checkups:
