Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The purpose of this bill is to allow a dental hygienist to place dental sealants on a patient's teeth without first having to have a dental examination by a licensed dentist.
    The Department of Health and Human Resources does not project any increased costs as a result of the passage of the proposed legislation. Sealants are currently a covered benefit for Medicaid children, and some sealants are covered by the Oral Health Program within the Bureau for Public Health.
