This is an appointment to discuss new or existing health issues, concerns, worries or symptoms. At the time of your visit your provider may request a return visit to followup on any health concerns that arose during your visit.
Office visits are covered by a standard insurance co-pay or deductible that are due at the time of your visit.
Physical & Preventive Care Visit
How often should I have a physical or preventive visit?
If you're a healthy adult, you'll likely only need to see your provider once a year for a physical exam, also may be know as a preventive visit. If you're managing a chronic condition, your provider may have you schedule office visits more frequently.
What to expect at a physical or preventive care visit?
A physical can also be a preventive step. During your visit you provider will likely ask you about your current health, family history, past illnesses and surgeries, chronic conditions to assess your healthy risk, update on vaccinations or may identify any health issues that may need further evaluation.
In addition, your provider may conduct screenings, specific to your age and gender. Some screenings may not be covered by your health plan, so please check with your health plan to help prevent out of pocket costs.
If you need specialized treatment, your provider may recommend a specialist. Some specialists may require a referral, so please check with your health plan prior to any specialized appointment to help prevent any out of pocket costs.
In the event that your physical or preventive visit requires additional evaluation, that may also lead to an office visit. You may be billed for both the physical or preventive visit AND the office visit. It is important to remember that this may result in unanticipated out of pocket costs for you based on your healthcare plan.
