U.S. Border Patrol Medical Screening Standards Act

This bill requires U.S. Customs and Border Protection to establish procedures to ensure consistent and efficient medical screenings for all individuals stopped between ports of entry. The screenings shall take place within 12 hours of the initial stop. The bill imposes various requirements for screenings, including documentation of current medical complaints and recordkeeping.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shall research and report to Congress new approaches to improve the screening procedures and recommend any necessary corrective actions, as well as a plan to record the results of the screenings in electronic health records that are interoperable with other DHS systems.
