Physicals for Sports, Camp, College
Some insurances will only cover one well exam every 365 days after a child turns 3 years old. At this yearly examination, our providers can fill out forms used for sports, camps, and colleges if the physical is within the timeframe requested by the organization.
If your child is participating in a High School sport, they may require an updated physical dated after June 1st of that calendar year. If your child has already had a physical exam within the 12-month period, and your insurance does not cover another well exam, South River Pediatrics offers Sports Physicals. These physicals are an out-of-pocket expense to the parent that is not submitted to insurance with the sole purpose of clearing the patient for sports play. There are no vaccines given or any discussion of ongoing medical issues. Please contact our office to see if your child would qualify for a Sport Physical based on school and yearly requirements.
