Practice Matters: Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment

Last update: July 22, 2021

The Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) program combines screening, diagnostic and treatment services to Medicaid-eligible individuals from birth to age 21. These services give children early access to preventive and comprehensive health care to help prevent disease and/or detect disabilities in their early stages, when they are more effectively treated.
