Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) Program

Comprehensive and periodic screenings or well-child checkups are the foundation of the C&TC program. Periodic examinations or screenings are delivered according to a set schedule assuring that health problems are diagnosed and treated early, before they become more complex and treatment more costly.

Children and teens, from birth to age 21, covered by a Minnesota Health Care Program (Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care) are automatically enrolled in the Child and Teen Checkup Program. For more information about the program, please call 763-682-8921.
