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.

Package A:

This health examination will approximately take half an hour.

Package B:

This health examination will approximately take one hour.

Package C:

  • All the items included in package B;
  • Additionally, a battery of oxygen consumption tests.

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.
