Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostics, and Treatment (EPSDT)
Select Health of South Carolina wants to help ensure that your young patients get the care they need. That's why our EPSDT program assists the parents or guardians of all members younger than 21 years of age in receiving EPSDT screenings, treatment, follow-up, and referrals to the Early Intervention program when appropriate.
Report child sexual abuse
One in four girls and one in six boys will be sexually abused by age 18. As a provider of health care, you are a mandatory reporter — as required by law — when there is a reason to suspect that a child has been sexually abused.
Protection from abuse and neglect
The South Carolina Department of Social Services (SCDSS) is responsible for protecting children and vulnerable adults from abuse and neglect by parents, guardians, caretakers or other relatives. SCDSS works to keep children and vulnerable adults safe in their own homes with supportive services.
If the child or vulnerable adult can’t be made safe at home, law enforcement or the courts remove the endangered child or adult, and SCDSS places the child with a relative or foster care, or helps the vulnerable adult have their needs met safely out of the home.
