Blood Lead Screenings Available for Families

Help inform families that Medicaid and CHIP cover blood lead screening tests for children. Get more information here to share in your community: CDC - Blood Lead Levels in Children.

Public Citizens for Children & Youth (PCCY) in Philadelphia teams up with Kids Smiles, a dental health provider, to help enroll eligible children in Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program when their families bring them in for free dental services. Once they are covered, children can get the dental care they need, when they need it.
