New Digital Resource. With support from the National Network of Libraries of Medicine NCEMCH has digitized materials in the EPSDT Hiscock Collection, making them widely available through an online portal, and has incorporated the electronic holdings into the MCH Knowledge Base. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires states to ensure that all Medicaid-eligible children and youth under age 21 receive comprehensive health services, especially early and periodic screening, diagnostic, and treatment (EPSDT) services. This collection traces the development of the EPSDT benefit.
