Member benefits

All children need well-visits and immunizations, even if they’re not sick. Well-visits are doctor visits that can help to detect and prevent health problems. They’re also a good way to get all of your child’s needed shots.

As a Virginia Premier member, your child qualifies for free well-visits.

Virginia Premier will also remind you when your child needs shots, dental visits and well check-ups with the doctor during a specific time frame throughout the year. You may get this reminder by phone call, email, mail, or text message. We also send educational texts as your children grow and reach developmental milestones.

If you need help finding a pediatrician, use our provider search tool.
