Hearing and Vision Services for Children: Efforts to Ensure Broad Implementation through Medicaid

Thursday, May 14th
1:00pm - 2:30pm (ET)

Register here!

Description

An estimated 25 percent of all school children in the United States have some type of vision problem significant enough to affect daily life and school performance. Similarly, despite the proliferation of hospital-based newborn hearing screening programs, a significant number of children with possible hearing loss are not receiving prompt diagnosis and treatment. The Medicaid program offers low-income children a comprehensive array of preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services, known as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) benefit. This webinar will focus on the role that EPSDT can play in addressing children’s vision and hearing problems. Speakers will provide an overview to EPSDT and present the results of their 50-state survey of states laws and policies addressing EPSDT coverage of hearing and vision services, along with an in-depth assessment of the Medicaid managed care contracting provisions that states are using to address these services.
