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.

CHDP health check-ups include:

  • Vision test
  • Hearing test
  • Teeth and gum check
  • Immunizations
  • 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:

On Medi-Cal:

  • 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
