Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) Program

Complete and regular screenings or well-child checkups are the basis of the C&TC program. These exams or screenings are given on a set schedule to assure that health problems are diagnosed and treated early, before they become more complex and treatment more costly.

Children and teens, from birth through age 20, covered by a Minnesota Health Care Program (Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care) are auto enrolled in the Child and Teen Checkup Program. For more information about the program, please call 763-682-8921.
