Texas Health Steps Medical Check-up
It is important that your child stays healthy. A regular visit to your child's primary care provider (PCP) will help detect any problems your child might be having. Make sure that you have a PCP selected for your child. If you need help picking a PCP call Member Services at 1-844-843-0004. For more information on the Texas Health Steps Program, call 1-877-847-8377 or go to Texas Health Steps Program website. Your child's medical check-up is due either on a milestone or birthday. See the chart below to help you know when one is due.
