Student-Athlete Sports Physicals

Blog physicals

We’ve had a recent change in regard to the Gritman clinics providing sports physicals. We take your child’s health seriously and want to ensure that we are following best-practice medicine at all times.

Our healthcare providers will continue to fill out the Sports Physical Examination paperwork at your child’s annual wellness exam as needed. However, we no longer offer the stand-alone discounted sports physical administrative exams which are not covered by insurance as they do not allow enough time for our healthcare providers to properly assess your child’s health status.

Most insurance companies, including Idaho Medicaid, pay 100% of the cost of the annual wellness exam and encourage the use of this benefit. During the annual well-child/well-adolescent exam, we will do an age appropriate physical exam, review and discuss risk factors, as well as review vaccination schedules and update vaccines as needed. If your child will be participating in sports, camps or other extracurricular events needing medical clearance, we will also fill out the necessary paperwork at that time.

For patients without insurance coverage, we have a financial assistance program. Through the financial assistance program we are able to offer sliding-scale discounts (even up to 100%) based on income and ability to pay.

You can schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor by calling their office or visit our Request an Appointment page to fill out a request online. If you have any questions or would like further information, please visit our Clinics page or feel free to call us at 208-883-1154.
