Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The agency is revising WAC 182-535-1245 to expand the ABCD program to include children ages six to twelve with disabilities and allow for dentists and dental hygienists who are certified to provide program services to children with disabilities to be paid at the enhanced rate for these children.
