Reporting Requirements
  • KDPH Clinical Service Guide (2022)
  • Lead Poisoning Prevention Provider Toolkit and Guide
  • All laboratories that analyze blood samples for lead content must report all results of 2.3 ug/dL and above to the State Cabinet.  This can be done several ways:
    • If you have a Lead Care II portable lead lab analyzer:
       
      • Utilize the Kentucky Online Gateway to confidentially report test results
      • There must be a designated user set up in the Kentucky Online Gateway system who will report these results within 7 days of analyzing.
      • If you do not have an account set up with a designated user, you must request an account at:  https://kog.chfs.ky.gov/home/ to gain access.
      • Additionally, you can consult the manual for the Lead Care II analyzers.
    • If you send your samples to an analyzing lab:
       
      • Health care providers should contact their analyzing lab to assure that they are CLIA certified and that they are reporting according to the CLIA minimum requirements, Per 42 CFR 493.1241(c)(1)-(c)(8), https://www.cms.gov/Regulations-and-Guidance/Guidance/Manuals/Downloads…
      • In addition, the state of Kentucky requires above and beyond what CLIA requires per KRS 211.902. Health care providers are responsible to make contact with their labs in assuring the reporting of this information.
      • If your analyzing lab is located outside of Kentucky, you must ensure that they report results to the Cabinet.
      • If you are unsure what to do to ensure you are meeting the requirements for reporting, contact the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments within the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as well as the Cabinet to ensure you are meeting Kentucky’s minimum requirements.
  • In addition to reporting to the Cabinet, please report all blood lead levels directly to CLPPP at Louisville Metro Department of Public Health and Wellness.
     
    • Please send by fax to 502-574-6657, attention of Karen Hess
    • Please collect and record as much patient information as possible on the requisition form to ensure the CLPPP Nurse Case Manager can contact the parent or guardian of the patient in a timely manner.
