Dear Submitter,

RE:  Revised G-1B, G-2A, G-2B, and new G-THSTEPS Specimen Submission Forms

Effective June 2010, the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) Laboratory Services Section will be changing the G-1B, G-2A, and G-2B specimen submission forms. In addition, a new G-THSTEPS specimen submission form has been created for submitting all Texas Health Steps (THSTEPS) specimens.

Enclosed you will find a new master copy of the new Specimen Submission forms and a copy of the form’s instructions. The forms will be mailed in two envelopes: one with G-2A and G-2B forms and the other with G-1B and G-THSTEPS forms. Please verify that your submitter information on the Specimen Submission forms is correct and up-to-date. If it is not, please complete the enclosed form titled “Submitter Identification (ID) Number Request Form” (Form #F14-13277) and fax it to (512) 458-7533.

Discard all old DSHS Laboratory specimen submission forms that are listed below:
