EMERGENCY RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Health and Recovery Services Administration)

[ Filed March 29, 2007, 4:30 p.m. , effective April 1, 2007 ]


Effective Date of Rule: April 1, 2007.

Purpose: The department inadvertently omitted repealing WAC 388-535-1265 when replacing this section with WAC 388-535-1271. To correct this oversight, the department is filing an emergency CR-103 to repeal WAC 388-535-1265 effective April 1, 2007. (WAC 388-535-1271, filed on March 1, 2007, under WSR 07-06-041, is effective on April 1, 2007.) The emergency repeal of this section will be in place until a permanent repeal of WAC 388-535-1265 takes effect.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 388-535-1265.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 74.08.090, 74.09.500, 74.09.520.

Under RCW 34.05.350 the agency for good cause finds that immediate adoption, amendment, or repeal of a rule is necessary for the preservation of the public health, safety, or general welfare, and that observing the time requirements of notice and opportunity to comment upon adoption of a permanent rule would be contrary to the public interest.

Reasons for this Finding: Repealing WAC 388-535-1271 effective April 1, 2007, will avoid confusion and ensure consistency in the approval, billing, and payment of dental-related services.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.
