The Northwest Justice Project created its eighth video, titled: “Public Healthcare for Children & Youth in Washington State.” This video was produced with Sara Zier, a Staff Attorney and Soros Justice Fellow at TeamChild in Tacoma. It will soon be posted on www.WashingtonLawHelp.org.
The video explains the public healthcare benefits that are available for children and youth who already receive some public medical assistance in Washington State. It explains the “Early & Periodic, Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment” (EPSDT) benefits, including how to apply, what it covers, and how to apply for a fair hearing if EPSDT benefits are denied. The video raises awareness about kids’ rights to receive all medically necessary health care, including regular and preventative care.
The videos have been added to two playlists on NJP’s YouTube Channel, both “Public Benefits and Economic Security” and “Youth Advocacy (with TeamChild).”
