Child and Teen Checkups
Public Health provides outreach for the preventive healthcare program Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC). Minnesota's C&TC Program entitles children and teens, birth to 21 years of age, who are enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare to cost-free annual healthcare checkups.
These checkups for infants, children and teens are thorough health checkups done by the individual's own healthcare provider. The checkups include:
History and Physical Exam
Growth and Development Screening
Vision and Hearing Screening
Child and Teen Checkups should be given:
Between birth and 1 month
At 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18 months
At 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 years
Every two years after age 6.
Child and Teen Checkups can be used for medical checkups required for school, summer camps, Head Start, WIC, or child care facilities. Public Health can help families find local medical clinics, dental clinics, and make Child and Teen Checkup appointments and dental appointments.
