PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY

DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Health and Recovery Services Administration)

[ Filed April 12, 2007, 4:11 p.m. ]

Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 388-535-1065 Coverage limits for dental-related services provided under the general assistance-unemployable (GA-U) and Alcohol and Drug Abuse Treatment and Support Act (ADATSA) programs.

Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 74.04.050, 74.08.090.

Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is striking "for clients through age twenty" that was inadvertently added in WAC 388-535-1065(4). The corrected rule will read "Each dental-related procedure described under this section is subject to the coverage limitations listed in chapter 388-535 WAC."

Process for Developing New Rule: The department invites the interested public to review and provide input on the draft language of this rule. Draft material and information about how to participate may be obtained from the department representative listed below.

Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Kathy Sayre, Rules Program Manager, P.O. Box 45504, Health and Recovery Services Administration, Olympia, WA 98504-5504, phone (360) 725-1342, fax (360) 586-9727, TTY 1-800-848-5429, e-mail sayrek@dshs.wa.gov.
