EPSDT - Well Child Check-Up Program

Medicaid’s Well Child Check-Up program is officially known as the Early, Periodic, Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment program. EPSDT is a mandated program that is designed to find children with actual or potential health problems and to screen, diagnose and treat the problems before they become permanent, lifelong disabilities. The program also offers preventive health services to Medicaid-eligible children under 21 years of age, except those who receive pregnancy-related or family planning services only.
