317:30-5-640.1. Periodicity schedule

Revised 9-12-22

(a) The Oklahoma Health Care Authority requires that all physicians providing reimbursable Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) screens adopt and utilize the American Academy of Pediatrics and Bright Futures periodicity schedule.

(b) Medicaid-eligible children and adolescents enrolled in SoonerCare are referred to their SoonerCare provider for EPSDT screens. In cases where the SoonerCare provider authorizes the qualified provider of health related services to perform the screen or fails to schedule an appointment within three (3) weeks and a request has been made and documented by the staff of the Oklahoma State Department of Education and Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH), or the latter's contractors, the OSDH may then furnish the EPSDT child-health screening and bill it as a fee-for-service (FFS) activity. Results of the child-health screening are forwarded to the member's SoonerCare provider.

(c) For periodic and interperiodic screening examination, please refer to Oklahoma Administrative Code 317:30-3-65 through 317:30-3-65.12.
