EPSDT has two purposes: to assure health care resources are available and accessible, and to help Medicaid recipients and their caregivers use these resources. Health care professionals who work with children in Head Start, child care organizations, and clinics may access their state's EPSDT schedule to ensure children's health needs are met.
