The early and periodic screening, diagnosis, and treatment (EPSDT) program is a federally mandated program of comprehensive preventive health services available to medicaid-eligible individuals from birth through age twenty years. In Ohio, the program is called healthchek and is administered by the county department of job and family services (CDJFS). A healthchek screening examination or its equivalent constitutes comprehensive health care for all children in placement.

EPSDT is a requirement of the Medicaid program and it’s contracted managed care plans (MCPs), not the CDJFS and the PCSA. The terminology “administered by the county department of job and family services, while true, confuses the obligations, which fall on the Medicaid program and its MCPs.
