The goal of the Health Check Program is to ensure children have uninterrupted access to a medical home and to ensure children fully utilize their medical home for sick visits, and preventive health care services such as well child check-ups, immunizations, dental care, and prescriptions. There is no separate enrollment in Health Check. If someone is eligible for Carolina ACCESS II Medicaid and is under the age of 21, they automatically receive Health Check services including auto generated state letters reminding them when an exam is needed.
