C&TC Information for Providers

This website links to clinical resources for primary care providers, including C&TC fact sheets, access to training, and other support for C&TC preventive services.

C&TC Periodicity Schedule

The C&TC Schedule of Age-Related Screening Standards, also known as the Periodicity Schedule, summarizes C&TC screening component requirements and recommendations by age. The required components must be completed, or screening exceptions documented, in order to bill for the enhanced C&TC bundled rate.

Minnesota Department of Human Services (DHS): Policy, Billing, Coding

Refer to the DHS Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) Provider Manual, C&TC Section for information about C&TC program policy, billing and coding, and other MHCP provider information. For questions that are not addressed there, email dhs.childteencheckups@state.mn.us.

Minnesota Health Care Programs (MHCP) offers free resources and MN–ITS training for enrolled MHCP providers/facilities who bill for Child and Teen Checkups.

Minnesota Department of Health (MDH): Clinical Consultation and Training

Staff are available for training and consultation on clinical components. For information on the C&TC trainings we provide, visit the Child and Teen Checkups Training Descriptions webpage.

C&TC Coordinators: Local Outreach to Families and Clinics

Every county and four tribes have C&TC Coordinators who provide local support for C&TC; find your local Coordinator on the Minnesota C&TC County/Tribe Coordinator List.

C&TC Coordinators provide:

  • Outreach to families to encourage them to go to their clinic for C&TC visits; they also help families find transportation or other help to access appointments.
  • Outreach and training for local clinics and providers.

C&TC Fact Sheets for Primary Care Providers

For each screening component or preventive service, there is a two-page fact sheet that summarizes what is required, which staff may provide the service, how it must be documented, and resources for referral and follow-up.
