- The child's follow-up examination (1-2 times a month) is carried out at the outpatient clinic:
- The doctor assesses the health of the newborn;
- The nurse assesses the quality of the newborn's care, informs about immunoprophylaxis, the vaccination calendar and the order and timing of follow-up visits;
What documents do I need when I first arrive at the clinic with my newborn baby (before he/she turns 1 month old)?

It is important to know that:
- Children under 18 are covered by compulsory health insurance (CHI), so the services provided to a newborn in a health facility are not paid for by the state, but by the sickness insurance fund, the Compulsory Health Insurance Fund (CHIF).
- Tests that are not covered by the PSDF but are requested by the newborn's parents must be paid for by the parents.
