Wellness visits serve as a way for you to learn more about your body and be proactive in taking care of yourself, even if you feel healthy. Furthermore, seeing your provider for your annual wellness visit will help you to build a relationship with your provider.
Added bonus: wellness visits are usually covered by insurance once per year (but charges may apply for screening tests). Contact your insurance company if you have questions about your benefits or need help locating a provider that takes your insurance.
If you have SHIP, the cost of an annual wellness visit is covered at the Student Health & Wellness Center. Students who do not have SHIP can still be seen at the Student Health & Wellness Center, but all charges will be billed to their student accounts.
