Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and treatment (EPSDT) Program

Your child’s health is important, and EPSDT is a program that helps families cover medical and wellness exams, immunizations, laboratory tests, and health education for children under the age of 21 that are eligible for Medicaid. These services are important to assure that children are healthy and are developing normally. What does EPSDT mean for you? 

EARLY – Identifying and treating health problems as soon as possible

PERIODIC – Wellness exams at regular, age-appropriate intervals

SCREENING – Test children for physical, mental, development, dental, hearing, vision and other health issues

DIAGNOSTIC – If an issue or a possible risk is discovered, perform specialized follow-up tests

TREATMENT – Addressing any health problems with specialized care

Well-child checkups are designed at regular intervals to monitor children throughout four key stages of their development: Infancy (birth – 11 mos.), Early Childhood (1 – 4 years), Middle Childhood (5 – 10 years), and Adolescence (11 – 21 years). Preventing illness or disease is the best way to promote good health for every child!
