Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT)
Training Acknowledgement & Attestation

Federal law enacted in 1967 established Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT), which guarantees all medically necessary services to children and youth under age 21 enrolled in Medi-Cal. As of 2023, California refers to EPSDT as Medi-Cal for Kids & Teens

In 2019, the California State Auditor released a report highlighting the low rates of children’s preventive health services in Medi-Cal. A follow-up audit in 2022 underscored that millions of Medi-Cal-enrolled children are still not receiving preventive services. In response, the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) committed to developing a standardized provider training on Medi-Cal for Kids & Teens.
