EPSDT 0-5 Service Providers

Alameda County has a large community of service providers dedicated to providing prevention and early intervention services to children ages 0-5 and their families.  The EPSDT community primarily focuses on the mental health needs of young children that can be billed through EPSDT.  EPSDT (Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment) is a Medi‐Cal entitlement for children 0‐21 years old that is designed to provide mental health services that can correct or ameliorate mental health problems and is available to children covered by full‐scope Medi‐Cal (Medi‐Cal coverage without restrictions).  Alameda County and Early Connections are committed to supporting young children’s social and emotional development through this important work.
