Blood Lead Testing Reports for Health Care Providers
Since 2006, Medicaid health care providers have received
an annual Blood Lead Testing Report. These reports were developed through
collaboration with the Wisconsin Medicaid Program and the Wisconsin
Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program. The individualized reports
summarize the blood lead testing data for children under age 6 within each
provider's practice. In addition providers received a
list of untested children in their practice to facilitate follow-up to
ensure these children get tested.
Children enrolled in Medicaid are required to have a blood
lead test at ages 1 and 2 and, if not tested at these ages, they must
receive at least one test between the ages of 3 to 5. Many Medicaid children do not
receive a blood lead test at the appropriate ages. The report was
developed to help more of these children get the tests they deserve.
