Well-child checkups are the best way to make sure your baby is growing and developing in a healthy way. It is recommended that children get at least 6 well-child checks by the age of 15 months. When you complete your 5th (9-month) and 6th (12-month) Texas Health Steps well-child checks, we’ll send you up to 2 free packs of diapers.

How do I claim my extra benefit?

You will receive a post card that you’ll need to take to your physician. At the end of your child’s 5th well-child check, fill out one half of the card and ask your doctor to sign it verifying your visit. Mail the post card, in a stamped envelope, to Texas Children’s Health Plan. You can claim this extra benefit a second time at the time of your child’s 6th well-child check by repeating the process described above to claim your extra benefit.

How will I receive it?

You will receive your extra benefit via U.S. Mail. If you are a patient at The Center for Children and Women, you will have the option to receive extra benefit on-site, upon completion of your child’s 5thth and 6th month well-child checkups.
