Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP)
CHIP provides no-cost or low-cost health coverage for eligible children from families with low- to moderate-incomes. Like Medicaid, it is jointly funded and administered by the state and the federal government. Children can receive routine check-ups, immunizations, dental care, prescription medications, and hospital care. You may qualify even if your children have been turned down in the past.
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 WIC Program, child care, camps, and sports participation physicals. For more information, contact your county human services, public health, or tribal health agency.
