Medical and Health Programs
Resources that help families cover medical and health expenses.

These programs may help pay for all or part of your family's health care costs if you:
- Do not have insurance
- Cannot get affordable health insurance through a job
- Have a disability or chronic condition and need help paying for care and services to stay in your home
- Need help paying for care in a hospital or other medical facility
For assistance call 855.366.7873 or apply online by going to the MNsure website, Minnesota’s online health insurance marketplace. Paper applications are available in English, Hmong, Russian, Somali, Spanish, and Vietnamese on the Department of Human Services website, and you can find a navigator to help you apply.
Child and Teen Checkups (C&TC)
C&TC is Minnesota’s Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Program. It covers children from birth through age 20 who are eligible for Medicaid. A visit often meets the health checkup requirements for school, Head Start, the WIC Program, child care, camps, and sports participation physicals. For more information, contact your county human services, public health, or tribal health agency.
