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

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.
