Healthcare providers, Care for Kids needs your help too!

Healthcare providers can improve quality indicators and help Care for Kids reach its goals by becoming a medical home for their patients.  A medical home provides a family with primary and regular care that includes health promotion, acute care, and chronic condition management, in a planned, coordinated, and family centered manner.  The medical home is the model for 21st century primary care.  If you would like to learn more about medical homes or learn how you can make your office a medical home, please visit the National Center for Medical Home Implementation at: https://www.aap.org/en-us/professional-resources/practice-transformation/medicalhome

In order to measure the number of medical homes in the area as well as the effectiveness of Care for Kids services, it is important that healthcare offices bill services using EPSDT billing codes.  To learn more about EPSDT billing codes, please visit: http://www.iowaepsdt.org/other-resources/billing-coding.  For information about EPSDT dental screening codes, please visit: http://ismile.idph.iowa.gov/.
