Information for Medical Providers

Testing Guidelines

Minnesota Department of Health provides blood lead screening and case management guidelines for health care professionals.

Changes to Follow-Up Care for Blood Lead Levels between 5 and 9.9 µg/dL (March 2011)

In response to the growing evidence that low level lead exposure (<10 µg/dL) can have harmful effects on cognitive functioning in children, Minnesota House File No. 419 was passed in 2010, requiring changes be made to both clinical and case management guidelines around blood lead levels that exceed 5 µg/dL. The Minneapolis Health Department (MHD) has created a fact sheet to help guide practitioners on the new guidelines.

Lead Poisoning Prevention Educational Materials

Minnesota Department of Health offers a variety of lead poisoning prevention educational materials in several languages.

In-home Referral Form

Free in-home lead assessments are available to residents of Minneapolis. If you would like to refer a family of a child with an elevated blood lead level, please complete the referral form and return it to:

Minneapolis Health Department
612-673-3866
Attn: Kathy Bergstrom

Families will be referred to one of our community partners who will provide information on lead, ways to prevent exposure, test their homes for lead, and help connect families with the City of Minneapolis' and Hennepin County's Lead Grant Programs which, for eligible families, helps cover some of the approved costs associated with making a home safe.

Child and Teen Checkup

Child and Teen Checkup (C&TC) is the name for Minnesota's Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment Program. C&TC is a comprehensive child health program provided to children and teens from newborn through the age of 20 who are enrolled in Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare. Dakota County provides useful provider tools and information on C&TC.
