Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC)

Prepaid Medical Assistance Program (PMAP), MinnesotaCare, UCare Connect + Medicare, UCare Connect and Individual & Family Plans members

 

From birth through age 21, all children and teens who are UCare members need regular Child and Teen Checkups. C&TC screenings help make sure children and teens are healthy and receive all needed immunizations (shots).

What happens at a C&TC visit?

This is a chance for you to ask questions and get answers about your child’s or your own health (teens). During a C&TC visit, the doctor will:

  • Check height, weight, vision, and hearing
  • Make sure immunizations are up-to-date
  • Talk about dental care
  • Talk about healthy eating
  • Check development and growth
  • Talk about the risks of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use (teens)
  • Talk about social and learning issues
  • Talk about stress and how to deal with it
  • And much more, depending on your child's or your own unique needs

Earn rewards for checkups

There is no copay, or charge, for Child & Teen Checkup (C&TC) visits for UCare members. You can also receive gift cards through UCare’s C&TC Rewards when you are up-to-date on shots and other tests that can be done at C&TC screenings. Some limits apply.

Call your primary care clinic or local public health agency to schedule a C&TC visit today. If you have questions, contact UCare Customer Service at the phone number on the back of your UCare member ID card. TTY/hearing impaired: 612-676-6810 or 1-800-688-2534 toll free.
