Preventive health exams can help children stay healthy, find health problems early, and answer many health questions. Through the CHDP program, eligible children and youth receive periodic preventive health exams. Children with suspected problems are then referred for diagnosis and treatment. Many health problems can be prevented or corrected, or the severity reduced, by early detection and prompt diagnosis and treatment.
Private physicians, community health centers, and some local school districts provide CHDP health assessments at no charge to income-eligible families or families with Medi-Cal throughout Riverside County. Riverside County has over 125 CHDP provider offices.
