Initial Health Assessment

All new members are encouraged to see their primary care provider (PCP) for an Initial Health Assessment (IHA). This first visit with your PCP is important. It’s the time to get to know each other and review your or your child’s health status. Your PCP will help you understand your or your child’s medical needs and advise you about staying healthy.

You should see your or your child’s  PCP for an IHA within 120 days or 4 months of becoming a member. Children 18 months old or younger should see their PCP for an IHA within 60 days of becoming a member. Call your PCP’s office for an appointment today.

If you need help scheduling an IHA appointment, please call us at 661-632-1590 (Bakersfield) o 1-800-391-2000 (outside of Bakersfield).

NEW!  If you complete your Initial Health Assessment within 120 days of enrolling in the Plan, you will receive a free gift!  Click on the New Incentive Flyer for more details.
