Reporting Communicable Disease

All cases of reportable disease, infection, or other conditions that are treated, examined, or suspected in an AmeriHealth Caritas Pennsylvania member by a health care practitioner or facility must be reported to the Pennsylvania Department of Health (DOH) as required by 28 PA Code, Chapter 27.

A person who is in charge of a clinical laboratory shall report the findings no later than the next work day after the close of business on the day on which the test was completed, unless an exception otherwise applies.
