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
