NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 26-1-5 grants the Department of Health (Department) the authority to adopt rules as necessary to implement the Medicaid program, and Section 26-18-3 requires the Department to implement the Medicaid program through administrative rules. Additionally, 42 CFR 440.100 authorizes services provided by, or under the supervision of, a dentist.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
The Department did not receive any written or oral comments regarding this rule.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
The Department will continue this rule because it defines the scope of dental services available under the Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnostic and Treatment (EPSDT) program. It will also continue this rule because it expands the scope of dental services available to segments of the population that include pregnant members, blind or disabled members, Targeted Adult Medicaid members, and members who are eligible for emergency dental services.
