Health Exams for Children and Youth
Regular health checkups can help your children stay healthy by discovering health problems early. When found early, diseases and other health problems are usually easier to treat, and early treatment can often prevent serious health issues later in life.
If you can’t afford these checkups, the Public Health Department may be able to help. The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program provides health checkups to children and youth from low-income families, at no cost. We also link families to ongoing healthcare coverage.
Children and youth ages 21 and younger who are on Medi-Cal are eligible for the CHDP Program. In addition, those who are ages 19 or younger with low to moderate incomes may be eligible.
To find out more about the CHDP checkups, see the "Contact and Location" and "Resources" tabs.
