HB15-1309 - Protective Restorations By Dental Hygienists

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Placement Of Interim Therapeutic Restorations By Dental Hygienists, And, In Connection Therewith, Ensuring Medicaid And Children's Basic Health Plan Reimbursement For Services Provided Through The Use Of Telehealth Related To Interim Therapeutic Restoration Procedures.

The bill allows a dental hygienist to apply to the Colorado dental board for a permit to place interim therapeutic restorations (ITRs). A dental hygienist who meets the following requirements is eligible to receive a permit to place ITRs:

  • Holds a license in good standing to practice dental hygiene;
  • Carries professional liability insurance;
  • Completes the required hours of dental hygiene practice; and
  • Completes a board-approved course based on uniform standards developed by an ITR advisory committee.

To the extent that state medicaid or children's basic health plan reimbursement is available for the placement of ITRs, the reimbursement will extend to services provided via telehealth in connection with the placement of an ITR.

The bill establishes the interim therapeutic restorations advisory committee to develop uniform standards for training dental hygienists to place ITRs.
