The Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC) program is Minnesota’s Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) program which is administered by the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
Children newborn through the age of 20 who are enrolled in Minnesota Care or Medical Assistance are eligible for C&TC. In 2009, there were more than 400,000 children eligible for C&TC in Minnesota.
Diagnosing & Treating Health Problems Early
Comprehensive and periodic screening or well-child checkups are the foundation of the C&TC program. Periodic examinations or screenings are delivered according to a set schedule, the periodicity schedule, assuring that health problems are diagnosed and treated early, before they become more complex and treatment more costly.
