When you have a complex or chronic health issue, taking care of your health can be hard. Don’t go through it alone.
Nurse Care Managers are here to help you manage your health. Our nurses work with a team of dietitians and Community Health Workers (CHWs) who will take the time to get to know you and your background. They will also find out what is important to you, and find you the services that will help you feel your best.

Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic, and Treatment (EPSDT) services is a program to make sure that children, up to age 21, get the care they need to grow up healthy.
EPSDT services include well-care visits for children. A well-care visit is when your child sees the PCP for a routine checkup. The reason for the visit is to see how your child is growing and developing. The EPSDT/well-care visit includes a complete exam. This will include checking your child’s height, weight, vision, hearing, and blood lead levels. Depending on the age and health history of your child, the PCP may also give your child a shot. The provider can give you advice about your child’s nutritional needs and activity levels.
We can help you make appointments for EPSDT services. If you need help, please call Member Engagement Services at 1.800.859.9889, Monday – Friday, from 8:00a.m. to 6:00p.m.
