Early detection examinations for children

The statutory health insurance funds cover the costs of early medical examinations for insured children and adolescents, which are also known as U-examinations and J-examinations. The examinations can be carried out by children and adolescents up to the age of 18. They are used for the early detection of diseases that endanger their physical, mental or psycho-social development. This includes, until the age of six, early detection tests for dental, oral and maxillofacial diseases, e.B. the determination of the risk of tooth decay and advice on nutrition and oral hygiene.

The information on the content, nature and scope of the investigations is provided by the Joint Federal Committee in the Directive on the Early Detection of Diseases in Children (U1 to U9) of the Youth Health Investigation Directive (J1).
