Referral Assistance

Healthy Families Line


This number will link you with your local EPSDT Care Coordinator, who will work with you and the family to access additional screening, evaluation, or intervention services that may be part of the child's comprehensive plan of care. The EPSDT Care Coordinator will also help you connect the family to referral resources.

Care coordination services can help you identify local referral resources and work with the family to determine specific, community-based services they can use to meet the goals they have set in their child's individualized care plan.
