Within the prevention project of the Estonian Health Insurance Fund, three health examination packages have been developed for young athletes. Whether you are going to have package A, B or C as your initial health examination depends on your training load and the nature of the sport.
This health examination will approximately take half an hour.
This health examination will approximately take one hour.
This health examination will approximately take 1.5–2 hours.
Package C is performed due to medical necessity or on young athletes who specialize in strength and endurance sports (for instance, canoeing, biathlon, cycling, middle and long distance walking, speed walking, decathlon, cross-country skiing, orienteering, Nordic combined, rowing, triathlon or swimming).
We also perform additional tests and examinations within the prevention programme if they are based on medical necessity or there is a relevant doctor’s referral.

To register a young athlete, we will need their personal ID code and the number of training sessions per week.
Right preparation is important before taking the exercise test. Please read the guidelines on the preparation for a young athlete’s health examination.

Spordimeditsiini SA [Sport and Exercise Medicine Foundation] is participating in the project “Young athletes’ health examination for the prevention of sport-related health risks” financed by the Estonian Health Insurance Fund.
Within the project, all teenagers aged 19 and under who practice sports (including competitions) at least 3 times per week in addition to Physical Education lessons at school can have a health examination at Spordimeditsiini SA for a regular visit fee.
* The prevention project of the Estonian Health Insurance Fund does not apply to young athletes training fewer than 3 times per week or those who would like to have an examination in order to get their physical capability evaluated and to gather information for an exercise plan. The above persons are to be monitored during regular health examinations performed by the GP; alternatively, their health examinations are to be financed by athletic clubs or parents.
