BACKGROUND/JUSTIFICATION:

The Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) recommends administering Shingrix in place of Zostavax (the existing Shingles vaccine).  This product is formulated to be administered to a wider range of clients and thus is medically superior to Zostavax.

 

The Division of Medical Assistance has created a procedure for local health departments to bill Medicaid directly for in-home lead investigations. This is a comprehensive environmental lead investigation. The Department has the ability to bill this service as of July 1, 2018. 

 

The North Carolina Division of Public Health Women’s and Children’s Health Section is requiring testing of diabetes for the Family Planning clients.  The Hemoglobin, glycated testing will fulfill the requirements as outlined in the NC Division of Public Health Family Planning Agreement Addendum.
