TO: CHILD HEALTH SERVICES (EPSDT), CERTIFIED NURSE-MIDWIFE, RE: COMPLETE THE EPSDT REFERRAL FIELDS FOR EPSDT CLAIMS
DENTAL, HEARING, LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH PRACTITIONER, NURSE

Providers submitting claims for EPSDT screenings/services on PES 2.15 or through the Medicaid Web site (DDE) must complete the EPSDT Referral fields. Failure
to complete these fields will result in your claims being denied.
On PES, if the EPSDT screening/service resulted in a referral or prescription for additional services, select Yes in the Certification Condition Indicator and on DDE,
check the Box and then the appropriate Condition Indicator: AV = Available – not Used (patient refused referral); NU = Not Used (used when no EPSDT patient
referral was given); S2 = Under Treatment (patient is currently under treatment for referred diagnostic or corrective health problem); ST = New Service Requested
(referral to another provider for diagnostic or corrective treatment/scheduled for another appointment with screening provider for diagnostic or corrective treatment for
at least one health problem identified during an initial or periodic screening service, not including dental referrals.)
These codes are required when billing for EPSDT screenings/services. The code should indicate actions taken as a result of the screening.
On both PES and DDE, if No is selected, you need to select NU as the appropriate Condition Code.
NOTE: On both DDE and PES, the Special Program Code 01 (EPSDT) will still need to be selected for these services
