317:30-5-1025.Interperiodic screening examination

[Issued 09-12-14]
   Interperiodic screenings must be provided when medically necessary to determine the existence of suspected physical or mental illnesses or conditions.  They may include physical, mental or dental conditions.  The determination of whether an interperiodic screen is medically necessary may be made by a health, developmental or educational professional who comes into contact with the child outside of the formal health care system.  Children enrolled in SoonerCareare referred to their SoonerCare provider for these services.  In cases where the SoonerCare provider authorizes the School to perform the screen or fails to schedule an appointment within three weeks and a request has been made and documented by the School, the School may then furnish the EPSDT child health  screening  and bill it as a fee-for-services activity.  Results of this interperiodic screening are forwarded to the child's SoonerCare provider.
