Would require the Department of Health Care Services to ensure that a child enrolled in Medi-Cal receives blood lead screening tests at 12 and 24 months of age, and that a child 2 to 6 years of age, inclusive, receives a blood lead screening test if there is no record of a previous test for that child. The bill would require the department to report its progress toward blood lead screening tests for all enrolled children, as specified, annually on its Internet Web site, establish a case management monitoring system, and require health care providers to test enrolled children, as specified.
