Children receiving blood lead screening

This indicator reflects the percentage of children (aged 12-35 months) enrolled in Medicaid (90+ days) screened for lead in their blood. Each pediatric Medicaid enrollee should be screened for blood lead during their 12 and 24 month well child visit. Common sources of pediatric lead exposure include dust and paint chips from chipping or peeling lead paint, as well as lead contaminated: soil, toys, water, cosmetics, and folk medicines.

    In 2016, data from 2012 to 2014 were re-run using an updated data set. Updated rates differ from past values posted on this website.

    Reporting on race became optional after 2013; individuals enrolling in the Medicaid program 2014 onward may not have reported race. For individuals who enrolled in the Medicaid program prior to 2014, their reported race in 2012 through 2014 was imputed to their files for 2014, 2015, and onward.
