2016 Health Check Record
Every year SCAN sends its members an updated and personalized Health Check Record. This helpful booklet can be used as a reminder and an organizer. Hold on to it, take it to your doctor appointments, and update it throughout the year.
If you do nothing else with the Health Check Record, we hope you will review the chart of recommended preventive care and screenings with your doctor. This is important because your doctor knows you and your personal health issues and priorities best. For example, you may be dealing with a critical illness – something the Health Check Record does not track. So work with your doctor on the right care plan for you.
Because the Health Check Records are customized, we do not reprint them during the year. You can print out blank copies of the preventive care and screenings charts.

To help you make the most of the Health Check Record, we’d like to call your attention to these areas:
Use the small pocket to hold things like appointment reminders and prescription forms you may get during an office visit. You’ll also see places to write down your doctors’ names and phone numbers.
2016 Health Check Record - Chart
The preventive care and screenings chart includes those that are generally recommended for people over the age of 65. If you are due for a screening, get it scheduled and then write down the date you have it done.
Note: If you have diabetes, your Health Check Record will have an extra chart with the screenings and preventive care you need to help keep your diabetes under control.
Where to Go for Care
This section includes guidelines for various appointments. We recommend you check this information with your doctor’s office to see if their scheduling guidelines are any different. That way you will know how to plan for appointments – and where to go if you can’t wait for an appointment.
Whether it’s a doctor’s appointment or a prescription refill, this is a convenient spot to write down upcoming appointments or reminders. Circle the dates on the calendar to help you plan ahead.
What Do You Need to Ask Your Doctor?
This checklist includes some of the most common concerns we hear from our members. Do any of these apply to you? If so, check the box and show it to your doctor. Be sure to find out your next steps. Write down other questions or concerns in the notes area.
Prescription for Exercise
This page encourages you to talk with your doctor about the amount and type of physical activity you do every day. Get his or her recommendations to ensure you are doing all you can do – and doing it safely!
This page includes some messages tailored to you and the medications you take (if we have that information for you).
You might not take any prescription medications – or maybe you take several. Either way, use this section to write down everything you are taking, including over-the-counter remedies, vitamins, etc. Make sure your doctor is aware of all of it.
While we can’t include all your benefits, we wanted to call out a few we thought important for you to take advantage of.
