Preventive Health Guidelines

We want you and your family to stay healthy. Regular checkups, even when you are not feeling sick, are important to maintain your health. They also help your doctor identify health problems early on. Preventive health guidelines show you when you need your regular checkups:


Update on Sterilization / Informed Consent

Effective immediately, physician or physician office staff member who goes over the consent form is required to provide the member with booklet on sterilization published by DHCS, as part of the Informed Consent process for sterilization prior to the member signing the PM 330 consent form.
