Child and teen checkups (C&TC) is a benefit for children and teens from newborn through the age of 20 years who are enrolled in Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care. This program connects children enrolled in a Medical Assistance Program with medical and dental service providers and offers information regarding child development, health and safety, and community resources.
The purpose of this comprehensive well child examination is:
To identify potential health problems or debilitating conditions;
To provide diagnosis and treatment of those health problems or conditions; and
To encourage the development of good health habits
Why Preventive health care is so important to child growth
Well-child exams help keep children healthy. They increase positive outcomes for the children that receive them and decrease future healthcare bills and costs.
Health Problems are found and treated early and more serious problems are prevented.
Healthy children are ready to learn.
Children and families learn at each well child exam about healthy lifestyles and safety habits, how to reduce risky behaviors, and appropriate use of medical facilities.
