Time for Sports Physicals

06-22-2016

Summer is only beginning, but the fall sports season is just around the corner. And that means it’s time for your child’s sports physical exam. Bozeman Health offers two sports physicals, depending on your child’s needs.

  • A sports physical (or pre-participation physical examination) assesses your teen’s health and fitness as it relates to a sport.
  • The Well Child Check comprehensive exam covers your child’s physical and emotional health. Medical history is reviewed and immunizations are updated. It’s the ideal time to discuss questions you have about your child’s health with your physician. This exam may be covered by insurance.

Check your insurance policy before you specify which examination you want for your child. Some policies may cover a well-child examination, but not a sports physical. Other policies may not cover a well-child check if performed within one year of a previous examination. Most plans have deductibles which must be met before benefits are paid.
