Well Child Care
|WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A WELL CHILD CARE VISIT?||WHEN DOES YOUR CHILD OR ADOLESCENT NEED A WELL CHILD CARE VISIT?|
EPSDT is a screening program that provides routine physicals or well child checks for Medicaid eligible children up to age 21; or children up to age 19
who receive Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program (KCHIP).
If your nurse or doctor finds a problem that requires special services, your child can be referred to a specialist. EPSDT Special Services include diagnostics, prevention, rehabilitation, treatment or services not covered by Medicaid, but are medically necessary.
EPSDT services are available at all of our local health centers as well as your doctor’s office. Services are provided at no cost to families with Medicaid or KCHIP. KCHIP III children are not eligible for EPSDT Special services.
