How about some good healthy advice?

What is HealthCheck?

HealthCheck (Wisconsinís EPSDT Program) is a preventive health check-up program for anyone under the age of 21 who is currently eligible for Wisconsin Medicaid or BadgerCare Plus.

Why should my child or I get a HealthCheck Exam?

HealthCheck teaches you and your child how to prevent illness, and can also find health problems early, before they become serious. (Remember a healthy child is a happy child!) HealthCheck meets the physical exam requirements for programs such as Head Start, Child Care or WIC (Women, Infants and Children Supplemental Food Program) and school physicals. A HealthCheck exam may also make you eligible for some services not normally paid for.

What if a health problem is found?

HealthCheck will help you make an appointment for any follow-up care or treatment. HealthCheck can also help you find a doctor or dentist if you need one.

What about transportation?

If you need transportation to your appointment, please contact the Non-Emergency Medical Transportation manager directly at (866) 907-1493 (Voice) or
(866) 288-3133 (TTY).
