Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Newborn Metabolic Screening Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall provide newborns with expanded screening tests for the presence of Mucopolysaccharidosis I (Hurler disease), Mucopolysaccharidosis II (Hunters disease), and Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Syndrome (SCIDS). Provides that if the Department is unable to provide expanded screening for SCIDS using the State Laboratory within 180 days after the effective date of the amendatory Act, then the Department shall temporarily provide the screening through an accredited laboratory selected by the Department until the Department has the capacity to provide screening through the State Laboratory. Permits the Department to substitute the fee charged by the accredited laboratory, plus a 5% surcharge for documentation and handling for the fee authorized if expanded screening is provided on a temporary basis through an accredited laboratory. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Provides that the Department of Public Health shall provide newborns with expanded screening tests beginning 90 days (instead of 30 days) after the effective date of the amendatory Act.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Newborn Metabolic Screening Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall provide all newborns with expanded screening tests for the presence of (1) certain Lysosomal Storage Disorders known as Krabbe, Pompe, Gaucher, Fabry, and Niemann-Pick, (2) Severe Combined Immunodeficiency Disease (SCID), and (3) Mucopolysaccharidosis I (Hurlers) and Mucopolysaccharidosis II (Hunters). Provides that testing for each respective disorder or disease shall begin within 6 months or 12 months, depending on the disorder or disease, following the occurrence of certain events. Provides that the Department is authorized to implement an additional fee for the screening prior to beginning the testing in order to accumulate the resources for start-up and other costs associated with implementation of the screening and thereafter to support the costs associated with screening and follow-up programs for the disorder or disease. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
