Benefits include:

  • Checkups (well child visits)
  • Shots (Immunizations)
  • Prescription medicine
  • Specialist care
  • Hospital care (inpatient and outpatient)
  • X-rays
  • Lab tests
  • Medical supplies

Well Child Visits are Key to Having a Healthy Child
Well Child visits are an important part of keeping your child healthy. These visits will make sure your child is growing right. They help find problems early, if there are any. And, as a parent, you can know what to expect as your child gets older.

If your child has El Paso Health and is between the ages of, 3-6 years old and 12-19 years of age, don’t forget to take your child’s birthday reminder card when they see their doctor for a Well-Child visit once a year.
