Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC)

Child and Teen Checkups Logo

C&TC is the name of a preventative health program developed to ensure that recipients of Medical Assistance receive health screenings on a regular basis. Children up to the age of 21 years old are entitled to receive screenings from the providers of their health plan. In Le Sueur County, the choices of provider would be Blue Plus or Medica. Our agency is able to help eligible families locate providers for medical and dental services. Remember to ask for a FULL CTC SCREENING when you schedule your child’s appointment. A Child and Teen Checkup from your medical provider would qualify for a sport physical for your adolescent.
