General Wellness Physicals

Unlike the previous exams described, general wellness physicals are more thorough and include all aspects of health and wellness. They require a longer waiting time and include tests such as EKG, X-rays, Labs, or vaccinations depending on your age. General wellness physicals are also referred to as Well Child physicals for patients under the age of 21.

Sports Physicals

Sports physicals are exams to verify if your child is in good condition to join a specific sport or activity. Sports physicals are required only for children who are 19 years old and younger and attend local schools.

Please keep in mind that a sports physical is different than a health physical, because it does not include prevention or screening tests than are required for early disease diagnosis. No appointment is required for a sports physical. However, they are done on a cash only basis and not covered by Medicaid and most insurance.

Therefore, our nurse practitioners in our children's clinic in Anchorage will not be billing your insurance.

Medical Clearance Physicals

We are Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) certified medical examiners to provide your physicals for your DOT/CDL .
Medical clearance physicals are exams required for CDL, employment or surgical clearance. Medical clearance physicals allow you to drive a commercial vehicle, perform manual work or allow you to undergo surgery. These exams, just like sports physicals, do not involve disease prevention, detection or screening, unless the patient requests a more in-depth examination. Medical clearance physicals are not covered by insurances, unless it is for pre-operative purposes. In that case our nurse practitioners in Anchorage will bill your insurance as a comprehensive exam due to its complexity and diagnostic screening.
