EPSDT-A Guide for States: Coverage in the Medicaid Benefit for Children & Adolescents

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has just published a Guide to the Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment benefits for children and youth under age 21 in Medicaid. The 38 page EPSDT Guide was written in collaboration with the National Health Law Program. While the Guide does not establish new EPSDT policy, it does serve the important purpose of compiling into a single document various EPSDT policy guidance that CMS has issued over the years.
