The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program provides complete well-child check-ups to promote health, prevent disease, injury and disability for children in Shasta County. Because health, dental check-ups and immunizations are so important for children, CHDP offers the check-ups free of charge to children on Medi-Cal and uninsured children that are income eligible.
A CHDP health check-up includes:
- Vision test
- Hearing test
- Teeth and gum check
- Growth and development check
- Lab tests
- Health information
- Referrals for any problems that are found
Nurses from CHDP will follow-up on all medical conditions or referrals made during the CHDP exam.
You are eligible for CHDP if you are:
- 0-21 years of age
- Medi-Cal will pay for any treatments or referrals needed
- 0-19 years of age
- Low to moderate income
- Eligible children will receive up to 2 months full scope Medi-Cal at the time of their CHDP exam to pay for treatments or referrals
