Care for Kids Program

The VNS of Iowa's Care for Kids Program - an Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis & Treatment (EPSDT) program - serves residents of Polk, Dallas, Clinton, and Jackson Counties. EPSDT is the benefit package of Medicaid/Title 19 for individuals under age 21 years. The focus of our EPSDT Care for Kids program is to:

  • Inform families of the benefits they receive with Medicaid/Title 19

  • Help individuals secure a medical and dental home

  • Ensure that eligible individuals receive and understand the importance of preventative health care

  • Link families to other community resources to improve their health and well-being (WIC, Early ACCESS, parenting classes, child care assistance, housing assistance, food pantries, etc.)

  • Provide transportation to qualifying medical, dental, and mental health appointments for Fee-For-Service members
