Healthy Families Line
The Healthy Families Line is a toll-free number that provides resource information on maternal, child, and family planning services. The line is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
A local EPSDT Care for Kids Coordinator will work with you and the family to access additional screening, evaluation or intervention services that may be part of the child’s comprehensive plan or care. The EPSDT Care Coordinator will also help you connect the family to referral resources.
Care coordination services can help identify local referral resources and work with the family to determine specific, community-based services they can use to meet the goals they have set in their child’s individualized plan.
The Iowa Department of Public Health maintains a network of local care coordinators throughout the state: Iowa EPSDT Care for Kids Program Coordinators
