The DSHS Expanded Primary Health Care (EPHC) Program provides primary, preventive and screening services to women, age 18 and older, that are at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level and are unable to access the same care through other programs. These services are made available at participating clinic sites throughout the state and are intended to increase the number of women receiving primary and preventive care services; increase early detection of breast and cervical cancers; avert unintended Medicaid births; reduce the number of preterm births; and reduce the number of cases of potentially preventable hospitalizations related to hypertension and diabetes.
