Resources for raising your family

What's covered?

Routine pediatric care

Routine pediatric health screenings and preventive immunizations are covered in full (no cost sharing). Find more information on preventive care.

For children from birth through age 5, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offer helpful information on the important developmental milestones your child should be reaching as they grow.

Early intervention

If your child is struggling to meet age-appropriate milestones, contact your child’s pediatrician. If you need help finding a pediatrician, contact Member Services.

Additional resources

Immunization reminders

We send a mailer to parents/guardians ahead of your child’s 11th birthday with information on the importance of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination. We’ll also send a postcard when your child is nearly 12 years old, reminding you to complete their adolescent immunizations.
