Hass, Gerald; Scovell, Melvin
Provided are guidelines on administration, diagnosis, and treatment in federally funded EPSDT--Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment Programs, a system for providing health care services to Medicaid-eligible children. Detailed in part one are factors involved in developing EPSDT programs. Four chapters consider the need for EPSDT, available resources (including school health programs, neighborhood health centers and health maintenance organizations), organization of services (such as outreach workers and health aides), and fiscal and program evaluation aspects (including budget development, cost efficiency, and reimbursement). Part two focuses on diagnosis, treatment, and followup services in EPSDT. A chapter discusses diagnosis and management of problems such as vision and hearing impairment, growth and nutrition disorders, and developmental problems. (CL)
