Make a Well-Care Visit Part of Your Child’s Back-to-School Plan

AHCCCS members ages 3-19 who complete their first well-care visit this summer can receive a $25 gift card

As you check off the list of your child’s back-to-school items, AHCCCS encourages parents to schedule a well-care visit for health screenings and routine vaccines. AHCCCS or KidsCare members, ages 3-19, and who complete their first well-care visit of 2023 between June 5 and Sept. 5 are eligible to receive a $25 gift card from their health plan.

“Well-care visits are a vital tool to screen for health conditions and preventable diseases,” said Dr. Sara Salek, chief medical officer at AHCCCS. “We want to help children get a healthy start this school year.”

At your child’s annual visit, your doctor will check key development milestones, monitor any conditions like asthma or allergies, and talk to you about any vaccines your child might need to enter school. They may also be able to address any emotional, developmental, or social concerns.

Once your child completes their well-care visit, your health plan will provide details of how to receive your $25 gift card. This gift card is available to AHCCCS or KidsCare members, ages 3-19, who complete their first well-care of 2023 between June 5 and Sept. 5 and who are enrolled in an AHCCCS managed care health plan. Participating AHCCCS managed care health plans include: Arizona Complete Health, Banner University Family Care, Care1st, Health Choice Arizona, Molina Healthcare, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan, and Mercy Care Plan.

Schedule your child’s well-care visit today. Learn more on the AHCCCS Back to School web page.
