Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)

Children are able to receive routine check-ups, immunizations, dental care, prescription medications, and hospital care. You may qualify even if your children have turned down in the past.
Call 800-657-3629 for information. If your child is not enrolled in a Minnesota Health Care Program, contact your local county or tribal human services agency to apply.
Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC)
C&TC is Minnesota’s Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Program. It covers children from birth through age 20 who are enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare. A visit often meets the health checkup requirements for school, Head Start, the Women, Infants & Children Program, child care, camps, and sports participation physicals. Be sure to take any forms you need to your appointment.
