Welcoming a New Foster Child: MedCheck is Convenient Option for Physicals

Welcoming a foster child involves more than a commitment to care for the child; it also means you will be busy with the necessary paperwork and appointments as the child gets settled in your home and at school. Along with intake appointments, enrolling in school, visitations and court hearings, the State of Indiana requires that the child have a physical scheduled within 10 days and completed within 30 days.

Adult and Child has contracted with MedCheck (operated by the Community Health Network) to provide physicals for newly placed foster children, in an effort to make this convenient for you.

MedCheck offers:

  • six locations throughout the Indianapolis area (including offices in Greenwood, Anderson, Noblesville, and Carmel)
  • daily access to physicians (open 7 days/week)
  • extended hours (standard hours are 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.; some locations are open 7 a.m. – 11 p.m.)
  • online scheduling through WebAhead, also available on your smartphone
