from the Department's testing service shall be placed in a special fund in

Department for the implementation and enforcement of this Act.

The Department of Healthcare and Family Services shall provide appropriate Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) Codes for all billable services and claim federal financial participation for the properly certified public expenditures submitted to it by the Department. Any federal financial participation revenue received pursuant to this Act shall be deposited in the Lead Poisoning Screening, Prevention, and Abatement Fund.

fee structure, to cover the costs of drawing blood for blood lead testing and evaluation
and any necessary follow-up.
