SCHEDULE YOUR ROUTINE HEALTH CHECKUP
When it comes to staying healthy, routine visits with your primary care provider (PCP) are key. Taking time for regular checkups with your PCP can benefit your health in many ways, including detecting any potential problems before they become serious, and managing any current health issues. Your PCP can also determine what preventive screenings or vaccines are necessary for you based on your age and health status.
Don’t have a PCP? We have tools below to make finding one easier.
To find a PCP near you, use our Find a Doctor & Estimate Costs tool. If you’re interested in finding a doctor that offers virtual appointments, you can filter results by “offers telehealth consultations.”
