she is not eligible for gov't assisted health insurance in the US
there is not likely any short term health insurance she can buy other than what she buys at the airport when she makes her flight booking
it is not likely any health insurance in the US would be paying for a check up on the basis of her choice

Before mom leaves home, have her see her own doctor for any shots or RX she may need while visiting the US.
She might want to check into travel insurance that covers medical while in the US. But, this does not cover an exam, but only for medical emergencies, if something were to happen while visiting.
The site attached explains how travel/medical works.

This is an incredibly bad idea.
First, she cannot get any government grant health insurance. The government does not give grants for visitor's health insurance. To get a government grant, she would have to move here, permanently.
Second, even with insurance, going to a doctor while in the U.S. can cost twice as much, or more, as it would in any other country in the world. It would be much cheaper to go to a doctor in the country where she is now.

Insurance doesn't cover "wanting to go for a medical check up".

< or apply any government grant health insurance >
Not a hope in hell. She needs to look in her country before she shows up in the US and understand what the health insurance covers and doesn't cover. A physical check up is unlikely to be covered.

No, she doesnt live here. She can pay cash. You cant get the government to pay if she lives in another country. Government assistance is for poor people only. Maybe she should see a doctor in her own country. The best she can do money-wise is go to a county clinic.

There is no government grant health insurance for visitors from foreign countries.
Decent private health insurance that covers a physical checkup would cost more than getting the physical checkup without insurance.
It might make sense to buy private health insurance for other reasons -- such as the remote possibility of an emergency hospitalization, which can cost millions of dollars in the U.S.
But as far as the physical exam itself, you don't need insurance for it, and it's cheaper to buy it without insurance than to buy insurance.
