Please Note: This rule is under review for 30 days for a five year rule review. This rule regards voluntary custody, independent living and health checks for children in agency custody. The review will concentrate on clarifying areas of the rules for a clearer understanding for the PCSA/PCPA.

(A) 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.

(B) The public children services agency (PCSA), private child placing agency (PCPA) or private noncustodial agency (PNA) shall develop written interagency procedures to implement comprehensive health care for children in placement between the CDJFS and custody holding agency, if applicable. Interagency procedures shall include a tracking system to inform the other party of healthchek activity and training to implement comprehensive health care for children in placement.

(C) The PCSA, PCPA or PNA shall review and amend the interagency procedures developed pursuant to paragraph (B) of this rule, as needed.

HealthCheck seems now to be the responsibility of the MCO rather than the County JFS as fee-for-service environment is no longer the primary funding structure.
