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 will happen 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!
No charge for C&TC screenings
There is no copay, or charge, for C&TC visits for UCare members. You can also earn 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.
