Medicaid benefit limit

Benefit Limits

The Alabama Medicaid Agency establishes annual benefit limits on certain
covered services. Certain services are excluded, such as services rendered as a result of an Early Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Treatment (EPSDT) screening. The EPSDT program covers recipients under 21 years of age. SOBRA pregnant women under 21 are not covered under EPSDT. When the recipient has exhausted his or her benefit limit for a particular service, providers may bill the recipient

The table below describes the benefit limitations documented as part of  eligibility verification.
