Adolescents who received a wellness checkup in the last year
This indicator shows the percentage of adolescents (ages 13-20 years old) enrolled in Medicaid (320+ days) who received a wellness visit during the past year. Many health and social problems peak in adolescence (homicide, suicide, motor vehicle crashes, substance use and abuse, smoking, sexually transmitted infections, HIV, unplanned pregnancies, and homelessness). Receiving annual wellness checkups can help detect and prevent the development of these problems in adolescence and later in life.
