Details The purpose of this hearing is to receive comments on proposed changes to Title 181, Chapter 2 of the Nebraska Administrative Code (NAC)—Screening of Infants for Metabolic Diseases. The proposed changes to these regulations update the language referencing metabolic diseases to inherited or congenital infant- or childhood-onset diseases, add three new diseases to the newborn screening panel, and allow the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) to increase the per-infant-screened fee to $20.00 per infant. These proposed changes will bring the regulations into compliance with the passage of Legislative Bill 91 (2017).
