Services for Medicaid–Eligible Children: Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT)
Medicaid covers a broad array of health and dental services for those under age 21. A federal law requires Medicaid to provide all medically necessary health care services to Medicaid-eligible children. This is called Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT), which is known in North Carolina as "Health Check." The services are required even if the services are not normally covered by the children's Medicaid.
