SPA 18-0014 Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT)

State Plan Amendment (SPA) 18-0014 Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) has been submitted to to revise language to reflect the February 2017 changes in the Fourth (4th) Addition of the Bright Futures/American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Periodicity Schedule, effective October 1, 2018. This SPA removes the specific screenings as required by the Fourth (4th) Addition of the Bright Futures/American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Periodicity Schedule, but includes the statement that Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) providers must screen according to the AAP. The specific requirements are listed in Miss. Admin. Code, Title 23, Part 223.
