MCH-030: Appropriate Testing of Medicaid Children For Lead

 
Appropriate Testing of Medicaid Children for Lead: The Wisconsin Medical Society supports coordinating efforts of the Society’s councils and committees with agencies working on lead poisoning issues to educate health care professionals through use of Society publications and through any other means deemed effective, about the continuing problem of childhood lead poisoning and its serious impact on childrens’ health, and about the importance of following the Federal rules regarding the testing of children for lead poisoning.

The Society supports the concept of incentives to health care professionals to follow the Federal rules regarding the testing of Medicaid children for lead poisoning. (HOD, 0412)
