How to Get Newborn Screening Results
The California Newborn Screening Program sends copies of the newborn screening results to the baby's hospital of birth and to the baby's primary care doctor on record. The pink and blue copies of the Test Request Form, which are provided to parents as proof that the test was done, should be taken to the baby’s first doctor visit so that the baby’s results can be located. If the baby's current doctor is not the same person entered on the Test Request Form, the baby's current doctor will need to submit the written consent form to get the results. Results should be expected in the timeframe of 2 to 3 weeks. If results have not been received by 3 weeks, a request should be made following the procedures below.
