The Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) is a federally-approved and endorsed service which provides thorough and preventive health services for Medicaid-qualified children from age 0 to 21. This program has been set up to ensure that children get access to critical health services that will improve their health conditions. The services incorporated in this program include:
- Complete and thorough medical examinations
- Comprehensive medical history
- Sensory screenings
- Risk screenings
- Immunizations and Vaccinations
- Anticipatory Guidance
- Nutrition Counseling
- Adolescent Guidance
Children who have been found to be needing treatment shall also be advised and endorsed to accredited agencies who can provide for them the proper medical and non-medical attention that they need.
This is where New Day Personal Care Services gets in the picture. We provide assistance to children and young adults who are diagnosed with developmental disability and provide for them and their family the daily assistance that they need at home. For more information about EPSDT, we encourage you to call our hotline or to set an appointment with us today.
