Your doctor wants to see your child when they are well, too. IHN-CCO covers well visits, as recommended by your doctor, to help you keep your child healthy.
These visits can help you understand how your child is growing and learning, and you can discuss any worries you may have about your child’s development. Call your provider to make an appointment and find out how often you should be scheduling a well visit.
It is hard to know if there is a problem in your child’s mouth without a regular check-up. IHN provides two check-ups a year. Check-ups include preventative services for your child including cleanings, fluoride treatments and dental sealants.
Children with behavioral challenges are served through Wraparound or intensive care coordination. Services are individualized to meet the child’s and family’s needs. System of Care and Wraparound planning involve everyone in the child’s life – schools, community organizations, doctors, criminal justice and others – in forming a team around the child and family to plan supportive services. Another program for children with mental illness is known as Integrated Service Array (ISA).
If you think your family could gain from these services, please call your county mental health program . They will decide if your child is eligible.
If your child has been approved for hearing aids, IHN will provide two hearing aids every three years.
