(Washington Apple Health)
[Filed August 3, 2015, 10:38 a.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 182-535-1050 Dental-related servicesDefinitions, 182-535-1400 Dental-related servicesPayment for dental-related services, and other rules as appropriate.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.05.021, 41.05.160.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WAC 182-535-1400 is being updated because it references WAC 182-535-1240 and 182-535-1290 that no longer exist. This WAC will be updated to reference WAC 182-535-1090. WAC 182-535-1050 is being updated with a definition for "six months" - a term needing clarification as it is used regularly in chapter 182-535 WAC.
During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
