Medicaid Service Delivery for Children and Youth

The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) produced a resource page for State policymakers, Medicaid officials, and other interested parties who aim to improve service delivery to children enrolled in Medicaid. NASHP researched historical data from the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment benefit (EPSDT), which includes a range of preventive and screening services, as well as vision, dental, and hearing services for children. In fiscal year 2012, more than 37 million children were eligible to receive this benefit in the United States.

The NASHP resource page offers State-specific information about strategies for delivering EPSDT to eligible children and youth, including information about coordinated care for physical and behavioral health.
