Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Hearing Screening for Newborns Act. Changes the short title to the Early Hearing Detection and Intervention Act. Defines terms. Replaces current provisions related to mandatory hearing screening with provisions that provide each medical care facility shall conduct bilateral hearing screenings for each newborn infant prior to discharge unless there is a medical contraindication or the infant is transferred before a screening can be completed. Contains provisions concerning infants that are transferred, requiring all medical care facilities to make provisions for outpatient screenings for infants born outside medical care facilities, and reporting and follow-up requirements for hearing screenings. Provides that for infants born outside a medical care facility, the newborn's primary care provider shall make a referral to a medical care facility for a hearing screening. Provides that specified providers and programs (rather than hospitals) shall report all hearing testing, medical treatment, and intervention outcomes related to newborn hearing screening or newly identified hearing loss for children birth through 6 years of age (rather than positive hearing screening results) to the Department of Public Health. Provides that the Department shall maintain a registry documenting screening, diagnosis, and intervention of cases of positive hearing results. Adds provisions concerning information sharing. Repeals provisions concerning a hearing screening advisory committee. Effective immediately.
