What happens at a C&TC visit?

From birth through age 21, all children and teens who are UCare members need regular Child and Teen Checkups. C&TC screenings help make sure children and teens are healthy and receive all needed immunizations (shots). This is a chance for you to ask questions and get answers about your child’s or your own health (teens). During a C&TC visit, the doctor will:

  • Check height, weight, vision, and hearing
  • Make sure immunizations are up-to-date
  • Talk about dental care
  • Talk about healthy eating
  • Check development and growth
  • Talk about the risks of drugs, alcohol, and tobacco use (teens)
  • Talk about social and learning issues
  • Talk about stress and how to deal with it
  • And much more, depending on your child's or your own unique needs

Every child and teen who is a member of UCare needs to have a Child and Teen Checkups visit at these ages:
