Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT)

BMC HealthNet Plan reminds providers of the importance of behavioral health screens as a normal and integral part of comprehensive well child care. As part of the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) schedule, we and MassHealth require primary care providers to offer a behavioral health screen to all MassHealth members under age 21 at every well child visit.
