Tuberculosis Control Program

Tuberculosis (TB) screening and treatment services for Health Net Medi-Cal members are covered by Health Net under the Department of Health Services (DHS) contract. Health Net collaborates with local health departments (LHDs) to control the spread of TB and to help members get TB treatment. Health Net coordinates with LHDs to establish effective coordination of care. Early diagnosis, immediate reporting to LHDs, and effective TB treatment are critical to interrupting continued transmission of TB. Physicians must report known or suspected cases to the LHD TB Control program office within one day of identification.
