Child & Teen Checkups

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.
