Re: Proposed Laboratory Testing Fee Rules

475.20 c)
Prior to delivering or shipping any sample/specimen to the Laboratory, the person
submitting the sample/specimen shall confirm with the Laboratory the availability
of the desired laboratory service/analysis and identify which Laboratory site or
sites (e.g., Chicago, Springfield, Carbondale or a contract laboratory site) will
perform the desired service/analysis and any testing authorization procedures that
are required.  Samples/specimens shall be delivered or sent only to a specific
Laboratory site designated as performing the requested laboratory service or to an
alternative site agreed to in advance. Authorization to obtain testing services is
based on criteria including, but not limited to: the need for public health
surveillance data with consideration of private testing availability; the need to
characterize or identify an outbreak; prior approval from the Department or a
Local Health Department, or a submission that is required by the Control of
Communicable Diseases Code or the Control of Tuberculosis Code.  Samples or
specimens submitted to the Laboratory without proper authorization will not be
tested. Laboratory staff will contact the submitter and determine whether the
sample/specimen will be returned or destroyed. Will LHDs be required to obtain approvals before submitting samples for new water wells, non-community supplies, or sewage compliance samples?

475.25 b)
Unless the sample/specimen is submitted as part of an agreed upon Department
surveillance program, in which case the fee may be reduced, the fees for tests are:
Each person who submits to the Laboratory any sample or specimen for any of the
following laboratory analyses shall pay the indicated fee:  
Will LHDs be charged for new water wells, non-community supplies, sewage compliance samples, water-borne outbreaks, or flooded wells?  Believe we need something written in to waive these fees.
