Newborn screen - does the state pay for this?

Hello ladies who have recently had a baby..I have really crappy insurance so I've been really worried about what they will cover and what they won't cover for my hospital stay. They are saying that they do not cover any genetic testing for myself or the baby (they didn't cover my AFP screening). But I know that the newborn screen is mandated in California. Has anybody ever had this issue? I'm guessing it would be a huge bill....But I know I cannot waive the newborn screen, nor would I want to...Does anyone have any insight? thx
