PHA Wellness Points
If you pay a monthly premium ($10 or $15) for your child’s Medicaid coverage, your child is eligible for the wellness PHA benefit. You can earn 10 points per month for keeping your child’s well-child checks and immunizations current. The points will be subtracted from your monthly Medicaid premiums.
Children should have a well-child check at the following ages:
|1 Week - 1 Month
Children ages 3-19 need a check-up every year.You should also ask your doctor which immunizations your child needs and to enter the immunization record into IRIS - Idaho's Immunization Registry.If you don't have a doctor for your child, call the Healthy Connections Unit at (888) 528-5861.
Note: Participants on the Home Care for Certian Disabled Children Program (Katie Beckett) and Medicare Medicaid Coordinated Plan participants are not eligible for PHA benefits.
