Coverage for Children at High-Risk for Lead Poisoning


Group health insurance policies that provide coverage for outpatient services must provide benefits for lead poisoning screening, testing, diagnostic evaluations, screening/testing supplies and home visits for children who are at risk for lead poisoning. The coverage may be subject to the plan’s normal cost-sharing provisions. The requirement applies to policies issued or renewed after December 31, 2021.

Employer plan sponsors should work with their insurers to communicate the coverage change to participants.
