IHP remains actively involved in activities related to maternal/child health.

Many IHP maternal/child health initiatives primarily focus on Maternal and Infant Support Services and Early Periodic Screening Diagnosis and Treatment (EPSDT) services.

  • EPSDT Foster Care Forms - IHP has worked with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, Medicaid managed care plans, local public health departments, and other partners to develop a toolkit to provide clinicians with practical tools to assist in identifying and providing EPSDT well child preventive services.
  • Focus groups, reports, and other activities - IHP has conducted a number of activities related to EPSDT service use and delivery.
