Children receiving blood lead screening

This indicator shows the percentage of children (aged 12-35 months) enrolled in Medicaid (90+ days) who had received a blood lead screening. Because symptoms may not be visible until blood lead levels of 70 µg/dL are reached, it is important to screen for elevated blood lead levels among toddlers.
