Children and teens age 2 months to 21 years who are uninsured are eligible for well child checkups and screening through Child Health Clinic. Exams are available at several locations.
The cost is based on your income, assets and the number of people in your household. There is no fee if your child has been accepted into a Minnesota Health Care Program such as Medical Assistance (MA) or MinnesotaCare. If your child is enrolled in a MA Health Plan, we will bill your health plan. Interpreters are provided.
Exams are available by appointment Tuesday through Friday. Location, times and days vary monthly. Evening appointments are also available.

Benefits of well child exams
A screening can often detect health or developmental problems in your child. The earlier health problems are found, the more easily they can be treated and corrected. The nurse will check to see if your child needs any shots to meet the state immunization requirements. The exams meet requirements for child care, school and camp physicals, but does not meet requirements for school sports.
