Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP)

Regular health exams can help your children stay healthy by preventing and identifying health problems early. When found early, diseases and other health problems are usually easier to treat, and early detection and treatment can often prevent serious health issues later in life. If you can’t afford these exams, the Public Health Department may be able to help. The Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) Program provides well-child exams to children and youth who qualify at no cost and links families to ongoing healthcare coverage.
Children and youth ages 21 and younger who are on Medi-Cal are eligible for the CHDP Program. In addition, those who are ages 19 or younger with low to moderate incomes may be eligible.
  • Types of CHDP Exams:
  • Well-baby and well-child exams
