If you have a child with a disability, getting adequate health care can be a very big challenge. However, for families eligible for Medicaid, there is a full children’s health care benefit package called EPSDT.
EPSDT stands for Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment, and is a part of every state’s required Medicaid package. EPSDT can be a very powerful tool in assisting children with developmental and other disabilities and their families to access the important services they need, It is very
important that you know what EPSDT is, who is eligible for it, what it offers, and
how to access its services.
