The Child and Teen Checkups program provides FREE medical, dental, and vision checkups to Meeker County residents who are age 20 or younger and enrolled in Medical Assistance.
Complete and regular screenings are the basis of the C&TC program. These exams are given on a set schedule to assure that health problems are diagnosed and treated early, before they become more complex and treatment more costly.
