Newborn Metabolic Screening

Morristown, Overlook and Newton medical centers test newborns for 54 different disorders, including:

For a complete list and to learn more about New Jersey’s required metabolic screening tests, visit the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services (NJ DHSS).

Any baby with abnormal screening results will be monitored by the NJ DHSS Newborn Screening and Genetic Services Program to ensure that the child and his or her family is linked with a primary care provider and the regional network of specialty care centers to receive timely and appropriate services. Also, any baby with a metabolic birth defect will be reported to the NJ DHSS Special Child Health Services Registry that will further link the family to services.

More testing is available through other private companies for an additional cost. Discuss the need for additional testing with your obstetrician or pediatrician.

If you decide to have additional testing, the screening kit should be obtained from a laboratory authorized by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services prior to delivery and brought to the hospital with you. See your registration packet for more information. Be sure to find out whether or not your insurance will cover the cost of the extra tests.
