Get Your Kids Tested for Lead

Blog-Lead-Test-1250x300

Children enrolled in Medicaid are required to have two lead screenings: one at 12 months, and another at 24 months.

That’s because even a small amount of lead can be harmful to them. Lead poisoning can damage many parts of the body, including the brain, kidneys and nervous system.

Sometimes the damage is permanent. It can interfere with normal childhood development. It can even cause seizures, coma and sometimes death.
