North Dakota Health Tracks, also known as the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) program, is a preventative health care program for newborns, children and young adults through age 20 who are enrolled in Medicaid. To see if you are eligible for North Dakota Medicaid see income guidelines.
The program is made up of comprehensive periodic screenings and well-child checkups that help prevent and identify health problems before they become too complex and costly to treat.
Health Tracks may cover:
- Physical exams
- Hearing and vision checks
- Glasses and hearing aids
- Vaccines (shots) and labs
- Dental care, braces, fluoride varnish
- Health education
- Behavioral health screenings
- Growth and development checks
- Nutrition counseling
- Other health services
Health Tracks benefits may be available to Medicaid enrollees at no charge.
Households with a client share may be responsible for the cost of some services. Client share is a monthly amount a person must pay in medical bills before the Medicaid program will pay for medical care received.
A Health Tracks coordinator will help schedule appointments for services and will also help with finding transportation to services. Some services require prior approval, so check with your coordinator about these requirements.
Health Tracks screenings are recommended at these ages:
- 2-5 days old
- 1 Month
- 2 Months
- 4 Months
- 6 Months
- 9 Months
- 12 Months
