AB 2976: Medi-Cal: benefits for children: blood lead screening tests (2017 - 2018)

Summary: 

Would require the State 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. The bill would also require the department to ensure that a child 2 to 6 years of age, inclusive, receives at least one blood lead screening test if there is no record of a previous test for that child.
