While Sam does not have health insurance, he knows he has to see a doctor. So, he schedules an annual wellness visit and receives a physical exam, which includes his recommended labs and flu shot. The doctor also recommends an EKG for follow-up testing. To manage his blood pressure throughout the year, Sam sees his physician two more times where he receives additional lab testing to measure his progress. Thankfully, he gets his blood pressure under control. During the year, though, Sam also acquires the flu, requiring a chest x-ray to rule out the possibility of pneumonia.
