Screening tests help determine that a child is developing healthily. In this way, diseases and developmental delays can be identified and treated in good time. The costs for the examinations are covered by all statutory and most private health insurance companies.
Parents are written to to remind them to carry out the U6 and U7 examinations. If you have any questions about this, the health department offers a consultation, including a home visit.
