How much does an Executive Health physical cost?

What do I wear to my physical?

Can I eat before my exam?
Please do not eat or drink anything except water for at least 12 hours prior to your appointment. After your blood is drawn for lab tests we will provide you with a breakfast of your choice.
Will the physician I see for my Executive Health physical become my doctor?
It is the recommendation of the Executive Health Program that everyone have a primary care physician (PCP). If you do not already have a PCP, we encourage you to establish care with one.
If appropriate, we can help you establish care with either an Internal Medicine or Family Practice doctor in the University of Colorado Hospital system.
Why don't I get a full body scan as part of the Executive Health Program?
Full body scans, while currently quite popular, have not been proven as a screening test. Additionally, these scans may reveal things that are not significant (false positives). The timing of how often to do these scans, as well as radiation exposure, remains a concern for recommending these tests. We do have the ability to utilize scanning technology, when appropriate for the patient.
Can I get my prescription filled during my exam?
Our doctors may write a particular prescription, but in general, prescription medications should be managed by your primary care doctor.
How do I pay for the Executive Health Program?
There are three ways to pay: credit card, check or through a corporate contract with your company.
