EPSDT & Title V Collaboration to Improve Child Health
You’ve been working on ensuring that every child’s health information is up to date and entered appropriately into all necessary forms.
Here is an updated clarification of exactly what is required and what is optional:
1) Use the EPDST schedule from NYS Dept. of Health to confirm what each medical needs to include according to each age.
Not every age has the same criteria.
1) Head Circumference is needed only until age 3 years.
2) Blood Pressure is only necessary from 3 years and older.
3) Hep A is not mandatory.
4) Growth charts: BMI, weight for age, and height for age are all mandatory for Early Learn
