Submitters / Providers

If you are the facility that submitted the sample, or the health care provider, please click on the NBS REPORT REQUEST FORM button below, print, and complete all the required fields. If you are a provider requesting sickle cell results for college athletes, please write “college” at the top of the form. Fax the completed form to 608-262-5494.

To ensure timely receipt of NBS reports, it is recommended that you establish an agreement with WSLH to receive by auto-fax (rather than mail) all NBS reports as they become available. To establish an auto-fax agreement, or modify an existing auto-fax agreement, please complete the appropriate auto-fax agreement form below, and follow the instructions for returning form to the WSLH. PLEASE NOTE: Do not use these agreements when requesting copies of specific reports; see red link above.
