317:30-5-1156.Environmental lead investigations
[Issued 06-25-07]
Environmental inspections are provided through the Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) upon notification from laboratories or providers and reimbursed through the Oklahoma SoonerCare program. The OCLPPP schedules an environmental inspection to identify the source of the lead for children who have a persistent blood lead level 15 ug/dL or greater. After the results of the environmental inspection have been received, the OHCA and OCLPPP continue case management activities until two consecutive blood lead measurements equal to or below 10 ug/dL have been achieved. A qualified investigator must be certified, accredited or granted approval by the Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality to perform environmental lead testing.
