Study of Health Insurance for Lead Poisoning Screening

Report No. 92-10 

Summary

Our office was asked to assess the social and financial impact of requiring health insurance coverage to screen children for lead poisoning.  We found that few individuals are using this screening for a variety of reasons.  Insurance alone will not guarantee that more people will get screened, and requiring coverage will probably increase the cost of health care and insurance rates.
