EPSDT and Health Check

EPSDT

Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) is the federal law that says Medicaid must provide all medically necessary health care services to Medicaid-eligible children. Even if a service is not covered under the NC Medicaid State Plan, it can be covered for recipients under 21 years of age if the service is listed at 1905(a) of the Social Security Act and if all EPSDT criteria are met. More EPSDT Information

Health Check

The Health Check program facilitates regular preventive medical care and the diagnosis and treatment of any health problem found during a screening. More Health Check Information
