All THSteps medical checkup policies apply to checkups completed in a physician’s office, a health department, clinic setting, or in a mobile/satellite unit. Enrollment of a mobile/satellite unit must be under a physician or clinic name.

The physical setting must be appropriate so that all elements of the checkup can be completed.
