Hello!

Welcome to your website prototype.

This is a reminder that while it does look pretty, this is just a prototype used for design purposes and is NOT a functional website. After final design approval, your project will enter the development phase where it will be coded and at that point will be deemed a final product.

Annual Physical

Overview

Important Dates: 

You and your enrolled spouse must complete an annual physical by May 31st to save on medical premiums for the second half of the year. Annual physicals are important to long term health maintenance and have many benefits:

  • Prevention and relationship building: Seeing your primary care provider on a regular basis helps establish an ongoing relationship, get your health questions answered and reduce and catch health risks early.
  • Sets baselines and save money: Setting a baseline will help your doctor detect a problem before it gets too serious. This can save you money on expensive medical bills down the road.
  • Update vaccinations: Vaccinations are not just for kids! Scheduling your annual physical will help track your vaccinations and ensure you are up-to-date.
  • Review and renew prescriptions: Make sure you’re treating your medical conditions the best way possible and continue to address any side effects or medication interactions.

Get your annual physical at an Onsite Health & Wellness Center (where available), or with your own provider. You must complete and submit the Annual Physical Form (located below) in order to receive credit.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is an annual physical the same as a biometric screening?

No, your biometric screening is a specific lab test that screens on health values. Your annual physical is an exam with your primary care physician to discuss your health history and monitor any health concerns.

  • What if I received a bill? If you received a bill for your annual physical, bring it to your onsite WellNurse.
  • The doctor’s office will not schedule my annual physical appointment until 12 full months have passed since my last exam, what do I do? Caesars medical plan covers annual physicals once each calendar year and does not require a full 12 months between appointments. This is bolded on your annual physical form for their reference.
What is covered during an annual physical?

Your provider will take a full set of vital signs that will include your height, weight, temperature, pulse and blood pressure. Many doctors don’t report your BMI, but there are calculators to find out your BMI using your height and weight. Your doctor will ask you questions about your current health and potential health issues. During the examination, your provider should be thoroughly examining your eyes, ears, nose, throat, checking your neck for lymph nodes, listening to your heart and lungs, examining your abdomen and genitalia. They should also evaluate your joints and look at your skin for lesions and potential skin cancers.

Depending on your age and gender, you many need to have additional lab testing or other examinations.

Do I need to tell my doctor/doctor’s office this is a physical/wellness exam when I make the appointment?
