Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT)

Kids grow up quickly. We help them grow up strong. Our EPSDT (Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment) Program includes regularly scheduled well-child visits to make sure children under 21 stay in good health. Well-child visits are appointments with your child’s doctor or primary care provider (PCP). The sooner your child is treated, the better the chances are to avoid serious problems.

Once the well-child visit is processed by the child’s provider and Health Plan of Nevada, a $10 Citibank® gift card is mailed to the child. Learn more.

*Appointment must be completed from June 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016. The well-child visit will be verified before the gift card is sent. Citibank® gift cards take six to eight weeks for processing. Program is subject to change. Citibank® gift cards will be sent to the address on file. Members are responsible for lost or stolen cards.
