Child & Teen Checkups

skateboard take care of body

Starting at age 3, every child should see their doctor every year and dentist every six months.  All Medical Assistance members age 0-20 are automatically enrolled in the Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) Program.  Medical and dental checkups are provided with no out-of-pocket fees!

Doctor visits aren’t just for sick kids.  Visiting a child’s doctor for preventive care is important to help find and treat health problems early.
A Child and Teen Checkup is a comprehensive preventive check 
that is a benefit to children under the age of 21, enrolled in Medical Assistance.  They are completely free of charge and can be completed by your child’s regular doctor.

 As part of the Child and Teen Checkups program, Scott County Public Health staff send checkup reminder letters to parents, help parents locate medical and dental clinics, and answer any questions about the program.

When Should Child and Teen Checkups be done?

  • Between Birth and 1 month
  • 2, 4, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 24 and 30 months
  • Every year from age 3 through 20.
