All visits for the kids are covered 100% (military Tricare), but I haven't taken my son to one since he was 12 months and Zoe has only gone to her 2 week appt. Base care where we lives leaves much to be desired and there's only ONE option out in town and I haven't heard good things. We are currently not vaxing. I really didn't see the point of waiting in a room with sick kids for 30 minutes to an hour just for 5 minutes with the ped. A tech always does the weight and measurements. If I had any concerns at all I'd take them to be seen in a heartbeat, but neither have been sick enough to need to be seen. I weigh and measure them. We're all happy.
I usually don't let people know that I don't take my kids to well visit. So many think that you *have* to take them and that it's neglect for me not to take them. *sigh*
