Child Health Evaluation and Care (CHEC) is the Utah State Medicaid Program for children ages 0-21 who qualify for assistance.
Salt Lake Valley Health Department’s CHEC program provides access to medical providers, doctors, dentists and mental health care providers to those who qualify.
Our emphasis: Well-child health care.
Preventative health care focused on keeping your child healthy and happy.
Your child should see the doctor for well-child health care because their growing bodies are changing so quickly. Well-child visits allow the doctor to check your child’s growth and development.
If there is a serious problem, the doctor can tell you about what to expect the answer questions about your child’s health. Your doctor can also give you advice on health and safety issues. Well-child care is important to you and your child.
The CHEC program will help you get the well-child care your child needs. You will be contacted by phone or mail when your child is due for a checkup.
Your child’s health is very important. Please contact us at (385) 468-3746 for more information on services and enrollment.
Child Health Evaluation and Care (CHEC) is a Medicaid benefit.
