If an offender is transferred from a county jail to the department, the administrator of a county jail facility shall certify to the department the amount of time spent in custody at the facility and the ((amount)) number of days of ((earned)) early release ((time)) credits lost or not earned. The department may approve a jail certification from a correctional agency that calculates ((earned)) early release time based on the actual amount of confinement time served by the offender before sentencing when an erroneous calculation of confinement time served by the offender before sentencing appears on the judgment and sentence. The department must adjust an offender's rate of early release listed on the jail certification to be consistent with the rate applicable to offenders in the department's facilities. However, the department is not authorized to adjust the number of presentence early release days that the jail has certified as lost or not earned.

(2) An offender who has been convicted of a felony committed after July 23, 1995, that involves any applicable deadly weapon enhancements under RCW 9.94A.533 (3) or (4), or both, shall not receive any good time credits or earned release time for that portion of his or her sentence that results from any deadly weapon enhancements.

(3) An offender may earn early release time as follows:

(a) In the case of an offender convicted of a serious violent offense, or a sex offense that is a class A felony, committed on or after July 1, 1990, and before July 1, 2003, the aggregate earned release time may not exceed fifteen percent of the sentence.

(b) In the case of an offender convicted of a serious violent offense, or a sex offense that is a class A felony, committed on or after July 1, 2003, the aggregate earned release time may not exceed ten percent of the sentence.

(c) An offender is qualified to earn up to fifty percent of aggregate earned release time if he or she:

(i) Is not classified as an offender who is at a high risk to reoffend as provided in subsection (4) of this section;

(ii) Is not confined pursuant to a sentence for:

(A) A sex offense;

(B) A violent offense;

(5)(a) A person who is eligible for earned early release as provided in this section and who will be supervised by the department pursuant to RCW 9.94A.501 or 9.94A.5011, shall be transferred to community custody in lieu of earned release time;

(b) The department shall, as a part of its program for release to the community in lieu of earned release, require the offender to propose a release plan that includes an approved residence and living arrangement. All offenders with community custody terms eligible for release to community custody in lieu of earned release shall provide an approved residence and living arrangement prior to release to the community;

(c) The department may deny transfer to community custody in lieu of earned release time if the department determines an offender's release plan, including proposed residence location and living arrangements, may violate the conditions of the sentence or conditions of supervision, place the offender at risk to violate the conditions of the sentence, place the offender at risk to reoffend, or present a risk to victim safety or community safety. The department's authority under this section is independent of any court-ordered condition of sentence or statutory provision regarding conditions for community custody;

(d) If the department is unable to approve the offender's release plan, the department may do one or more of the following:

(i) Transfer an offender to partial confinement in lieu of earned early release for a period not to exceed three months.

(e) For each offender who is the recipient of a rental voucher, the department shall include, concurrent with the data that the department otherwise obtains and records, the housing status of the offender for the duration of the offender's supervision.

(6) An offender serving a term of confinement imposed under RCW 9.94A.670(5)(a) is not eligible for earned release credits under this section.

Sec. 3. RCW 9.92.151 and 2009 c 28 s 3 are each amended to read as follows:

(1) Except as provided in subsection (2) of this section, the sentence of a prisoner confined in a county jail facility for a felony, gross misdemeanor, or misdemeanor conviction may be reduced by earned release credits in accordance with procedures that shall be developed and promulgated by the correctional agency having jurisdiction. The earned early release time shall be for good behavior and good performance as determined by the correctional agency having jurisdiction. Any program established pursuant to this section shall allow an offender to earn early release credits for presentence incarceration. The correctional agency shall not credit the offender with earned early release credits in advance of the offender actually earning the credits. In the case of an offender convicted of a serious violent offense or a sex offense that is a class A felony committed on or after July 1, 1990, the aggregate earned early release time may not exceed fifteen percent of the sentence. In no other case may the aggregate earned early release time exceed one-third of the total sentence.

(2) An offender serving a term of confinement imposed under RCW 9.94A.670(5)(a) is not eligible for earned release credits under this section.

(3) If an offender is transferred from a county jail to the department, the administrator of a county jail facility shall certify to the department the amount of time spent in custody at the facility and the number of days of early release credits lost or not earned.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 4. Pursuant to RCW 9.94A.729, the department shall recalculate the earned release date for any offender currently serving a term in a facility or institution either operated by the state or utilized under contract. The earned release date shall be recalculated whether the offender is currently incarcerated or is sentenced after the effective date of this section, and regardless of the offender's date of offense. For offenders whose offense was committed prior to the effective date of this section, the recalculation shall not extend a term of incarceration beyond that to which an offender is currently subject.

(b) The department must submit a report with its findings to the office of financial management and the appropriate fiscal and policy committees of the house of representatives and the senate by January 1, 2015, and January 1, 2018.

(2) For purposes of this section, "department" means the department of corrections.

NEW SECTION. Sec. 6. The legislature declares that section 4 of this act does not create any liberty interest. The department is authorized to take the time reasonably necessary to complete the recalculations of section 4 of this act after the effective date of this section.

(i) Are not eligible to receive federal aid assistance, other than basic food benefits transferred electronically and medical assistance;

(ii) Meet the eligibility requirements of subsection (3) of this section; and

(iii) Are aged, blind, or disabled. For purposes of determining eligibility for assistance for the aged, blind, or disabled assistance program, the following definitions apply:

(A) "Aged" means age sixty-five or older.

(B) "Blind" means statutorily blind as defined for the purpose of determining eligibility for the federal supplemental security income program.

(C) "Disabled", until June 30, 2015, means a bodily or mental infirmity that will (I) likely continue for a minimum of nine months; (II) prevent the individual from currently performing work that the individual was able to perform as a substantial gainful activity within the prior ten years; and (III) is otherwise likely to meet the federal supplemental security income disability standard as determined by the department. In making this determination, the department should give full consideration to the cumulative impact of an applicant's multiple impairments, an applicant's age, and vocational and educational history.

In determining whether a person is disabled, the department may rely on, but is not limited to, the following:

(((I))) (1) A previous disability determination by the social security administration or the disability determination service entity within the department; or

(((II))) (2) A determination that an individual is eligible to receive optional categorically needy medicaid as a disabled person under the federal regulations at 42 C.F.R. Parts 435, Secs. 201(a)(3) and 210.

(b) The following persons are not eligible for the aged, blind, or disabled assistance program:

(i) Persons who are not able to engage in gainful employment due primarily to alcohol or drug addiction. These persons shall be referred to appropriate assessment, treatment, shelter, or supplemental security income referral services as authorized under chapter 74.50 RCW. Referrals shall be made at the time of application or at the time of eligibility review. This subsection may not be construed to prohibit the department from granting aged, blind, or disabled assistance benefits to alcoholics and drug addicts who are incapacitated due to other physical or mental conditions that meet the eligibility criteria for the aged, blind, or disabled assistance program; or

(ii) Persons for whom there has been a final determination of ineligibility for federal supplemental security income benefits.

(c) Persons may receive aged, blind, or disabled assistance benefits pending application for federal supplemental security income benefits. The monetary value of any aged, blind, or disabled assistance benefit that is subsequently duplicated by the person's receipt of supplemental security income for the same period shall be considered a debt due the state and shall by operation of law be subject to recovery through all available legal remedies.

(2) Effective November 1, 2011, the pregnant women assistance program shall provide financial grants to persons who:

(a) Are not eligible to receive federal aid assistance other than basic food benefits or medical assistance; and

(b) Are pregnant and in need, based upon the current income and resource standards of the federal temporary assistance for needy families program, but are ineligible for federal temporary assistance for needy families benefits for a reason other than failure to cooperate in program requirements; and

(3) To be eligible for the aged, blind, or disabled assistance program under subsection (1) of this section or the pregnant women assistance program under subsection (2) of this section, a person must:

Good cause must be found to exist when a person's physical or mental condition, as determined by the department, prevents the person from participating in drug or alcohol dependency treatment, when needed outpatient drug or alcohol treatment is not available to the person in the county of his or her residence or when needed inpatient treatment is not available in a location that is reasonably accessible for the person; and

(((d))) (e) Not have refused or failed to cooperate in obtaining federal aid assistance, without good cause.

(4) Effective November 1, 2011, referrals for essential needs and housing support under RCW 43.185C.220 shall be provided to persons found eligible ((for medical care services under RCW 74.09.035 who are not recipients of alcohol and addiction services provided under chapter 74.50 RCW or are not recipients of aged, blind, or disabled assistance)) under section 3 of this act.

(5) No person may be considered an eligible individual for benefits under this section with respect to any month if during that month the person:

NEW SECTION. Sec. 3. A new section is added to chapter 74.04 RCW to read as follows:

(1) The department is responsible for determining eligibility for referral for essential needs and housing support under RCW 43.185C.220. Persons eligible are persons who:

(a) Are incapacitated from gainful employment by reason of bodily or mental infirmity that will likely continue for a minimum of ninety days. The standard for incapacity in this subsection, as evidenced by the ninety-day duration standard, is not intended to be as stringent as federal supplemental security income disability standards;

(b) Are citizens or aliens lawfully admitted for permanent residence or otherwise residing in the United States under color of law;

(c) Have furnished the department their social security number. If the social security number cannot be furnished because it has not been issued or is not known, an application for a number must be made prior to authorization of benefits, and the social security number must be provided to the department upon receipt;

(d) Have countable income as described in RCW 74.04.005 at or below four hundred twenty-eight dollars for a married couple or at or below three hundred thirty-nine dollars for a single individual;

(iii) Federal aid assistance, other than basic food benefits transferred electronically and medical assistance.

(2) The following persons are not eligible for a referral for essential needs and housing support:

(a) Persons who are unemployable due primarily to alcohol or drug addiction, except as provided in subsection (3) of this subsection. These persons must be referred to appropriate assessment, treatment, shelter, or supplemental security income referral services as authorized under chapter 74.50 RCW. Referrals must be made at the time of application or at the time of eligibility review. This subsection may not be construed to prohibit the department from making a referral for essential needs and housing report for persons who have a substance abuse addiction who are incapacitated due to other physical or mental conditions that meet the eligibility criteria for a referral for essential needs and housing support.

(b) Persons who refuse or fail to cooperate in obtaining federal aid assistance, without good cause;

(c) Persons who refuse or fail without good cause to participate in drug or alcohol treatment if an assessment by a certified chemical dependency counselor indicates a need for such treatment. Good cause must be found to exist when a person's physical or mental condition, as determined by the department, prevents the person from participating in drug or alcohol dependency treatment, when needed outpatient drug or alcohol treatment is not available to the person in the county of his or her residence or when needed inpatient treatment is not available in a location that is reasonably accessible for the person; and

(d) Persons who are fleeing to avoid prosecution of, or to avoid custody or confinement for conviction of, a felony, or an attempt to commit a felony, under the laws of the state of Washington or the place from which the person flees; or who are violating a condition of probation, community supervision, or parole imposed under federal or state law for a felony or gross misdemeanor conviction.

(3) For purposes of determining whether a person is incapacitated from gainful employment under subsection (1) of this section:

(a) The department shall adopt by rule medical criteria for incapacity determinations to ensure that eligibility decisions are consistent with statutory requirements and are based on clear, objective medical information; and

(b) The process implementing the medical criteria must involve consideration of opinions of the treating or consulting physicians or health care professionals regarding incapacity, and any eligibility decision which rejects uncontroverted medical opinion must set forth clear and convincing reasons for doing so.

(4) For purposes of reviewing a person's continuing eligibility and in order to remain eligible for the program, persons who have been found to have an incapacity from gainful employment must demonstrate that there has been no material improvement in their medical or mental health condition. The department may discontinue benefits when there was specific error in the prior determination that found the person eligible by reason of incapacitation.

(5) The department must review the cases of all persons who have received benefits under the essential needs and housing support program for twelve consecutive months, and at least annually after the first review, to determine whether they are eligible for the aged, blind, or disabled assistance program.

Sec. 4. RCW 43.185C.220 and 2011 1st sp.s. c 36 s 4 are each amended to read as follows:

(1) The department shall distribute funds for the essential needs and housing support program established under this section in a manner consistent with the requirements of this section and the biennial operating budget. The first distribution of funds must be completed by September 1, 2011. Essential needs or housing support is only for persons found eligible for such services under ((RCW 74.62.030(4))) section 3 of this act and is not considered an entitlement.

(2) The department shall distribute funds appropriated for the essential needs and housing support program in the form of grants to designated essential needs support and housing support entities within each county. The department shall not distribute any funds until it approves the expenditure plan submitted by the designated essential needs support and housing support entities. The amount of funds to be distributed pursuant to this section shall be designated in the biennial operating budget. For the sole purpose of meeting the initial distribution of funds date, the department may distribute partial funds upon the department's approval of a preliminary expenditure plan. The department shall not distribute the remaining funds until it has approved a final expenditure plan.

(3)(a) During the 2011‑2013 biennium, in awarding housing support that is not funded through the contingency fund in this subsection, the designated housing support entity shall provide housing support to clients who are homeless persons as defined in RCW 43.185C.010. As provided in the biennial operating budget for the 2011-2013 biennium, a contingency fund shall be used solely for those clients who are at substantial risk of losing stable housing or at substantial risk of losing one of the other services defined in RCW 74.62.010(6). For purposes of this chapter, "substantial risk" means the client has provided documentation that he or she will lose his or her housing within the next thirty days or that the services will be discontinued within the next thirty days.

(b) After July 1, 2013, the designated housing support entity shall give first priority to clients who are homeless persons as defined in RCW 43.185C.010 and second priority to clients who would be at substantial risk of losing stable housing without housing support.

(4) For each county, the department shall designate an essential needs support entity and a housing support entity that will begin providing these supports to medical care services program recipients on November 1, 2011. Essential needs and housing support entities are not required to provide assistance to every ((medical care services recipient that is)) person referred to the local entity or who meets the priority standards in subsection (3) of this section.

(a) Each designated entity must be a local government or community‑based organization, and may administer the funding for essential needs support, housing support, or both. Designated entities have the authority to subcontract with qualified entities. Upon request, and the approval of the department, two or more counties may combine resources to more effectively deliver services.

(b) The department's designation process must include a review of proficiency in managing housing or human services programs when designating housing support entities.

(c) Within a county, if the department directly awards separate grants to the designated housing support entity and the designated essential needs support entity, the department shall determine the amount allocated for essential needs support as directed in the biennial operating budget.

(5)(a) Essential needs and housing support entities must use funds distributed under this section as flexibly as is practicable to provide essential needs items and housing support to recipients of the essential needs and housing support program, subject to the requirements of this section.

(b) Benefits provided under the essential needs and housing support program shall not be provided to recipients in the form of cash assistance.

(c) The appropriations by the legislature for the purposes of the essential needs and housing support program established under this section shall be based on forecasted program caseloads. The caseload forecast council shall provide a courtesy forecast of the ((medical care services recipient)) population eligible for a referral for essential needs and housing support that is homeless or is included in reporting under subsection (7)(c)(iii) of this section. The department may move funds between entities or between counties to reflect actual caseload changes. In doing so, the department must: (i) Develop a process for reviewing the caseload of designated essential needs and housing support entities, and for redistributing grant funds from those entities experiencing reduced actual caseloads to those with increased actual caseloads; and (ii) inform all designated entities of the redistribution process. Savings resulting from program caseload attrition from the essential needs and housing support program shall not result in increased per‑client expenditures.

(d) Essential needs and housing support entities must partner with other public and private organizations to maximize the beneficial impact of funds distributed under this section, and should attempt to leverage other sources of public and private funds to serve essential needs and housing support recipients. Funds appropriated in the operating budget for essential needs and housing support must be used only to serve persons eligible to receive services under that program.

(6) The department shall use no more than five percent of the funds for administration of the essential needs and housing support program. Each essential needs and housing support entity shall use no more than seven percent of the funds for administrative expenses.

(7) The department shall:

(a) Require housing support entities to enter data into the homeless client management information system;

(b) Require essential needs support entities to report on services provided under this section;

(c) In collaboration with the department of social and health services, submit a report annually to the relevant policy and fiscal committees of the legislature. A preliminary report shall be submitted by December 31, 2011, and must include (c)(i), (iii), and (v) of this subsection. Annual reports must be submitted beginning December 1, 2012, and must include:

(i) A description of the actions the department has taken to achieve the objectives of chapter 36, Laws of 2011 1st sp. sess.;

(ii) The amount of funds used by the department to administer the program;

(iii) Information on the housing status of essential needs and housing support recipients served by housing support entities, and individuals who have requested housing support but did not receive housing support;

(iv) Grantee expenditure data related to administration and services provided under this section; and

(v) Efforts made to partner with other entities and leverage sources or public and private funds;

(d) Review the data submitted by the designated entities, and make recommendations for program improvements and administrative efficiencies. The department has the authority to designate alternative entities as necessary due to performance or other significant issues. Such change must only be made after consultation with the department of social and health services and the impacted entity.

(8) The department, counties, and essential needs and housing support entities are not civilly or criminally liable and may not have any penalty or cause of action of any nature arise against them related to decisions regarding: (a) The provision or lack of provision of housing or essential needs support; or (b) the type of housing arrangement supported with funds allocated under this section, when the decision was made in good faith and in the performance of the powers and duties under this section. However, this section does not prohibit legal actions against the department, county, or essential needs or housing support entity to enforce contractual duties or obligations.

Sec. 5. RCW 43.185C.230 and 2011 1st sp.s. c 36 s 5 are each amended to read as follows:

The department, in collaboration with the department of social and health services, shall develop a mechanism through which the department and local governments or community-based organizations can verify a person has been determined eligible by the department of social and health services and remains eligible for ((medical care services under RCW 74.09.035 by the department of social and health services)) the essential needs and housing support program.

PART II
HUMAN SERVICES

 

NEW SECTION. Sec. 201. FOR THE DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES

(1) The appropriations to the department of social and health services in this act shall be expended for the programs and in the amounts specified in this act. Appropriations made in this act to the department of social and health services shall initially be allotted as required by this act. Subsequent allotment modifications shall not include transfers of moneys between sections of this act except as expressly provided in this act, nor shall allotment modifications permit moneys that are provided solely for a specified purpose to be used for other than that purpose.

(2) The department of social and health services shall not initiate any services that require expenditure of state general fund moneys unless expressly authorized in this act or other law. The department may seek, receive, and spend, under RCW 43.79.260 through 43.79.282, federal moneys not anticipated in this act as long as the federal funding does not require expenditure of state moneys for the program in excess of amounts anticipated in this act. If the department receives unanticipated unrestricted federal moneys, those moneys shall be spent for services authorized in this act or in any other legislation providing appropriation authority, and an equal amount of appropriated state general fund moneys shall lapse. Upon the lapsing of any moneys under this subsection, the office of financial management shall notify the legislative fiscal committees. As used in this subsection, "unrestricted federal moneys" includes block grants and other funds that federal law does not require to be spent on specifically defined projects or matched on a formula basis by state funds.

(3)(a) The health care authority and the department are authorized to develop an integrated health care program designed to slow the progression of illness and disability and better manage medicaid expenditures for the aged and disabled population. Under the Washington medicaid integration partnership (WMIP) and the medicare integrated care project (MICP), the health care authority and the department may combine and transfer such medicaid funds appropriated under sections 204, 206, 208, and 213 of this act as may be necessary to finance a unified health care plan for the WMIP and the MICP program enrollment. The WMIP pilot projects shall not exceed a daily enrollment of 6,000 persons, nor expand beyond one county during the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium. The amount of funding assigned from each program may not exceed the average per capita cost assumed in this act for individuals covered by that program, actuarially adjusted for the health condition of persons enrolled, times the number of clients enrolled. In implementing the WMIP and the MICP, the health care authority and the department may: (i) Withhold from calculations of "available resources" as set forth in RCW 71.24.025 a sum equal to the capitated rate for enrolled individuals; and (ii) employ capitation financing and risk-sharing arrangements in collaboration with health care service contractors licensed by the office of the insurance commissioner and qualified to participate in both the medicaid and medicare programs.

(b) If Washington has been selected to participate in phase two of the federal demonstration project for persons dually-eligible for both medicare and medicaid, the department and the authority may initiate the MICP. Participation in the project shall be limited to persons who are eligible for both medicare and medicaid and to counties in which the county legislative authority has agreed to the terms and conditions under which it will operate. The purpose of the project shall be to demonstrate and evaluate ways to improve care while reducing state expenditures for persons enrolled both in medicare and medicaid. To that end, prior to initiating the project, the department and the authority shall assure that state expenditures shall be no greater on either a per person or total basis than the state would otherwise incur. Individuals who are solely eligible for medicaid may also participate if their participation is agreed to by the health care authority, the department, and the county legislative authority.

(4) The legislature finds that medicaid payment rates, as calculated by the department pursuant to the appropriations in this act, bear a reasonable relationship to the costs incurred by efficiently and economically operated facilities for providing quality services and will be sufficient to enlist enough providers so that care and services are available to the extent that such care and services are available to the general population in the geographic area. The legislature finds that cost reports, payment data from the federal government, historical utilization, economic data, and clinical input constitute reliable data upon which to determine the payment rates.

(5) The department shall to the maximum extent practicable use the same system for delivery of spoken-language interpreter services for social services appointments as the one established for medical appointments in section 213 of this act. When contracting directly with an individual to deliver spoken language interpreter services, the department shall only contract with language access providers who are working at a location in the state and who are state-certified or state-authorized, except that when such a provider is not available, the department may use a language access provider who meets other certifications or standards deemed to meet state standards, including interpreters in other states.

(6) The department shall facilitate enrollment under the medicaid expansion for clients applying for or receiving state funded services from the department and its contractors. Prior to open enrollment, the department shall coordinate with the health care authority to provide referrals to the Washington health benefit exchange for clients that will be ineligible for the medicaid expansion but are enrolled in coverage that will be eliminated in the transition to the medicaid expansion.

The reductions to appropriations in this subsection related to semi-secure crisis residential centers reflect a reduction to the number of beds for semi-secure crisis residential centers and not a reduction in rates. Any secure crisis residential center or semi-secure crisis residential center bed reduction shall not be based solely upon bed utilization. The department is to exercise its discretion in reducing the number of beds but to do so in a manner that maintains availability and geographic representation of semi-secure and secure crisis residential centers.

Long-term cost benefit must be considered. Percentage changes may occur in the evidence-based program or disposition alternative categories of the formula should it be determined the changes will increase evidence-based program or disposition alternative delivery and increase the cost benefit to the state. These outcomes will also be considered in determining when evidence-based expansion or special sex offender disposition alternative funds should be included in the block grant or left separate.

General Fund‑-State Appropriation (FY 2014).......... $327,467,000

General Fund‑-State Appropriation (FY 2015).......... $308,723,000

General Fund‑-Federal Appropriation........................ $561,394,000

General Fund‑-Private/Local Appropriation................ $17,864,000

TOTAL APPROPRIATION.................................. $1,215,448,000

The appropriations in this subsection are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

(a) $104,999,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $85,895,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely for persons and services not covered by the medicaid program. To the extent possible, levels of regional support network spending shall be maintained in the following priority order: Crisis and commitment services; community inpatient services; and residential care services, including personal care and emergency housing assistance. This is a reduction in flexible nonmedicaid funding of $4,343,000 for fiscal year 2014 and $23,446,000 for fiscal year 2015. This reduction reflects offsets in state funding related to services that will now be funded with federal dollars through the affordable care act medicaid expansion. This reduction shall be distributed as follows:

(i) The $4,343,000 reduction in fiscal year 2014 and $11,723,000 of the reduction in fiscal year 2015 must be distributed among regional support networks based on a formula that equally weights each regional support networks proportion of individuals who become newly eligible and enroll in medicaid under the expansion provisions of the affordable care act in fiscal year 2014 and each regional support network's spending of flexible nonmedicaid funding on services that would be reimbursable for federal medicaid matching funds if provided to medicaid enrollees in the 2011-2013 fiscal biennium.

(ii) The remaining $11,723,000 reduction in fiscal year 2015 must be distributed among regional support networks based on each regional support network's proportion of individuals who become newly eligible and enroll in medicaid under the expansion provisions of the affordable care act through fiscal year 2015.

In determining the proportion of medicaid and nonmedicaid funding provided to regional support networks with PACT teams, the department shall consider the differences between regional support networks in the percentages of services and other costs associated with the teams that are not reimbursable under medicaid. The department may allow regional support networks which have nonmedicaid reimbursable costs that are higher than the nonmedicaid allocation they receive under this section to supplement these funds with local dollars or funds received under section 204(1)(a) of this act. The department and regional support networks shall maintain consistency with all essential elements of the PACT evidence-based practice model in programs funded under this section.

(c) $5,850,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014, $5,850,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015, and $1,300,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for the western Washington regional support networks to provide either community- or hospital campus-based services for persons who require the level of care previously provided by the program for adaptive living skills (PALS) at western state hospital.

(f) The department is authorized to continue to contract directly, rather than through contracts with regional support networks, for children's long-term inpatient facility services.

(g) $750,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $750,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely to continue performance-based incentive contracts to provide appropriate community support services for individuals with severe mental illness who were discharged from the state hospitals as part of the expanding community services initiative. These funds will be used to enhance community residential and support services provided by regional support networks through other state and federal funding.

(h) $1,125,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $1,125,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely for the Spokane regional support network to implement services to reduce utilization and the census at eastern state hospital. Such services shall include:

(j) Regional support networks may use local funds to earn additional federal medicaid match, provided the locally matched rate does not exceed the upper-bound of their federally allowable rate range, and provided that the enhanced funding is used only to provide medicaid state plan or waiver services to medicaid clients. Additionally, regional support networks may use a portion of the state funds allocated in accordance with (a) of this subsection to earn additional medicaid match, but only to the extent that the application of such funds to medicaid services does not diminish the level of crisis and commitment, community inpatient, residential care, and outpatient services presently available to persons not eligible for medicaid.

(k) $3,436,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $2,291,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely for mental health services for mentally ill offenders while confined in a county or city jail and for facilitating access to programs that offer mental health services upon release from confinement.

Regional support networks must use this funding for the development of intensive community programs that allow individuals to be diverted or transitioned from the state hospitals in accordance with plans approved by the department.

(n) Due to recent approval of federal medicaid matching funds for the disability lifeline and the alcohol and drug abuse treatment support act programs, the department shall charge regional support networks for only the state share rather than the total cost of community psychiatric hospitalization for persons enrolled in those programs.

(o) The legislature finds that the circumstances of the Chelan-Douglas regional support network (CD-RSN) make it necessary for CD-RSN to undergo restructuring in order to provide mental health services essential to the health and wellness of the citizens within its service area. The legislature intends to provide additional temporary financial relief to the CD-RSN while it undergoes internal restructuring or negotiates a merger with another regional support network.

The department shall negotiate relief for outstanding fiscal year 2013 reimbursements owed by CD-RSN to the state provided that the CD-RSN has a plan in place that is approved by the department by August 1, 2013, that demonstrates how CD-RSN will maintain financial viability and stability or will merge with another regional support network.

For the period of July 1, 2013, through December 31, 2013, the department may alter collection of reimbursement from CD-RSN for overuse of state hospital beds. To receive a reduction to the required reimbursement for overuse of state hospital beds, CD-RSN must continue to prioritize services that reduce its utilization and census at eastern state hospital and be actively implementing an approved plan to maintain financial viability or pursuing a future merger with another regional support network. Up to $298,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 is for the department to provide payments to regional support networks in eastern Washington which have used less than their allocated or contracted patient days of care at the state hospital to replace the share of the reimbursements from CD-RSN that the regional support networks would have received under RCW 71.24.320.

(p) $266,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 is provided solely to maintain services for the King county regional support network as it works to transition services to settings that are eligible for federal participation for individuals covered under the medicaid program.

The appropriations in this section are subject to the following conditions and limitations:

(1) $1,143,994,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation is provided solely to implement the medicaid expansion as defined in the social security act, section 1902(a)(10)(A)(i)(VIII), subject to the conditions and limitations in this subsection. If the federal medical assistance percentage for the medicaid expansion falls below the percentages in section 1905(y) of the social security act as of July 1, 2013, the authority shall ensure that the state does not incur any additional state costs above what would have been incurred had the federal medical assistance percentages remained at the percentages in section 1905(y) as of July 1, 2013. The director is authorized to make any necessary program adjustments to comply with this requirement, including adding or adjusting premiums, modifying benefits, or reducing optional programs. To the extent a waiver is needed to accomplish this, the director shall promptly apply for such waiver. If a necessary waiver is not approved, the medicaid expansion program shall be terminated upon appropriate notification to the legislature and enrollees.

(2) The requirements of this subsection apply to the basic health plan. This subsection is null and void and has no further effect upon implementation of the medicaid expansion under subsection (1) of this section.

(a) Within amounts appropriated in this section and sections 205 and 206 of this act, the health care authority shall continue to provide an enhanced basic health plan subsidy for foster parents licensed under chapter 74.15 RCW and workers in state-funded home care programs. Under this enhanced subsidy option, foster parents eligible to participate in the basic health plan as subsidized enrollees and home care workers with family incomes below 200 percent of the federal poverty level shall be allowed to enroll in the basic health plan at the minimum premium amount charged to enrollees with incomes below sixty-five percent of the federal poverty level.

(b) The health care authority shall require organizations and individuals that are paid to deliver basic health plan services and that choose to sponsor enrollment in the subsidized basic health plan to pay 133 percent of the premium amount which would otherwise be due from the sponsored enrollees.

(c) The administrator shall take at least the following actions to assure that persons participating in the basic health plan are eligible for the level of assistance they receive: (a) Require submission of (i) income tax returns, and recent pay history, from all applicants, or (ii) other verifiable evidence of earned and unearned income from those persons not required to file income tax returns; (b) check employment security payroll records at least once every twelve months on all enrollees; (c) require enrollees whose income as indicated by payroll records exceeds that upon which their subsidy is based to document their current income as a condition of continued eligibility; (d) require enrollees for whom employment security payroll records cannot be obtained to document their current income at least once every six months; (e) not reduce gross family income for self-employed persons by noncash-flow expenses such as, but not limited to, depreciation, amortization, and home office deductions, as defined by the United States internal revenue service; and (f) pursue repayment and civil penalties from persons who have received excessive subsidies, as provided in RCW 70.47.060(9).

(d) Enrollment in the subsidized basic health plan shall be limited to only include persons who qualify as subsidized enrollees as defined in RCW 70.47.020 and who (a) qualify for services under 1115 medicaid demonstration project number 11-W-00254/10; or (b) are foster parents licensed under chapter 74.15 RCW.

(3) The legislature finds that medicaid payment rates, as calculated by the health care authority pursuant to the appropriations in this act, bear a reasonable relationship to the costs incurred by efficiently and economically operated facilities for providing quality services and will be sufficient to enlist enough providers so that care and services are available to the extent that such care and services are available to the general population in the geographic area. The legislature finds that the cost reports, payment data from the federal government, historical utilization, economic data, and clinical input constitute reliable data upon which to determine the payment rates.

(4) Based on quarterly expenditure reports and caseload forecasts, if the health care authority estimates that expenditures for the medical assistance program will exceed the appropriations, the health care authority shall take steps including but not limited to reduction of rates or elimination of optional services to reduce expenditures so that total program costs do not exceed the annual appropriation authority.

(5) In determining financial eligibility for medicaid-funded services, the health care authority is authorized to disregard recoveries by Holocaust survivors of insurance proceeds or other assets, as defined in RCW 48.104.030.

(6) The legislature affirms that it is in the state's interest for Harborview medical center to remain an economically viable component of the state's health care system.

(7) When a person is ineligible for medicaid solely by reason of residence in an institution for mental diseases, the health care authority shall provide the person with the same benefits as he or she would receive if eligible for medicaid, using state-only funds to the extent necessary.

(8) $4,261,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014, $4,261,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015, and $8,522,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for low-income disproportionate share hospital payments.

(10) $100,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $100,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely for grants to rural hospitals in Clallam county that were certified by the centers for medicare and medicaid services as sole community hospitals as of January 1, 2013, with less than one hundred fifty acute care licensed beds in fiscal year 2011.

(11) Within the amounts appropriated in this section, the health care authority shall provide disproportionate share hospital payments to hospitals that provide services to children in the children's health program who are not eligible for services under Title XIX or XXI of the federal social security act due to their citizenship status.

(12) $6,000,000 of the general fund‑-federal appropriation is provided solely for supplemental payments to nursing homes operated by public hospital districts. The public hospital district shall be responsible for providing the required nonfederal match for the supplemental payment, and the payments shall not exceed the maximum allowable under federal rules. It is the legislature's intent that the payments shall be supplemental to and shall not in any way offset or reduce the payments calculated and provided in accordance with part E of chapter 74.46 RCW. It is the legislature's further intent that costs otherwise allowable for rate-setting and settlement against payments under chapter 74.46 RCW shall not be disallowed solely because such costs have been paid by revenues retained by the nursing home from these supplemental payments. The supplemental payments are subject to retrospective interim and final cost settlements based on the nursing homes' as-filed and final medicare cost reports. The timing of the interim and final cost settlements shall be at the health care authority's discretion. During either the interim cost settlement or the final cost settlement, the health care authority shall recoup from the public hospital districts the supplemental payments that exceed the medicaid cost limit and/or the medicare upper payment limit. The health care authority shall apply federal rules for identifying the eligible incurred medicaid costs and the medicare upper payment limit.

(13) The health care authority shall continue the inpatient hospital certified public expenditures program for the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium. The program shall apply to all public hospitals, including those owned or operated by the state, except those classified as critical access hospitals or state psychiatric institutions. The health care authority shall submit reports to the governor and legislature by November 1, 2013, and by November 1, 2014, that evaluate whether savings continue to exceed costs for this program. If the certified public expenditures (CPE) program in its current form is no longer cost-effective to maintain, the health care authority shall submit a report to the governor and legislature detailing cost-effective alternative uses of local, state, and federal resources as a replacement for this program. During fiscal year 2014 and fiscal year 2015, hospitals in the program shall be paid and shall retain one hundred percent of the federal portion of the allowable hospital cost for each medicaid inpatient fee-for-service claim payable by medical assistance and one hundred percent of the federal portion of the maximum disproportionate share hospital payment allowable under federal regulations. Inpatient medicaid payments shall be established using an allowable methodology that approximates the cost of claims submitted by the hospitals. Payments made to each hospital in the program in each fiscal year of the biennium shall be compared to a baseline amount. The baseline amount will be determined by the total of (a) the inpatient claim payment amounts that would have been paid during the fiscal year had the hospital not been in the CPE program based on the reimbursement rates developed, implemented, and consistent with policies approved in the 2013-2015 biennial operating appropriations act and in effect on July 1, 2013, (b) one-half of the indigent assistance disproportionate share hospital payment amounts paid to and retained by each hospital during fiscal year 2005, and (c) all of the other disproportionate share hospital payment amounts paid to and retained by each hospital during fiscal year 2005 to the extent the same disproportionate share hospital programs exist in the 2013-2015 fiscal biennium. If payments during the fiscal year exceed the hospital's baseline amount, no additional payments will be made to the hospital except the federal portion of allowable disproportionate share hospital payments for which the hospital can certify allowable match. If payments during the fiscal year are less than the baseline amount, the hospital will be paid a state grant equal to the difference between payments during the fiscal year and the applicable baseline amount. Payment of the state grant shall be made in the applicable fiscal year and distributed in monthly payments. The grants will be recalculated and redistributed as the baseline is updated during the fiscal year. The grant payments are subject to an interim settlement within eleven months after the end of the fiscal year. A final settlement shall be performed. To the extent that either settlement determines that a hospital has received funds in excess of what it would have received as described in this subsection, the hospital must repay the excess amounts to the state when requested. $3,860,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $1,137,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015 are provided solely for state grants for the participating hospitals.

(14) The health care authority shall seek public-private partnerships and federal funds that are or may become available to provide on-going support for outreach and education efforts under the federal children's health insurance program reauthorization act of 2009.

(15) The health care authority shall target funding for maternity support services towards pregnant women with factors that lead to higher rates of poor birth outcomes, including hypertension, a preterm or low birth weight birth in the most recent previous birth, a cognitive deficit or developmental disability, substance abuse, severe mental illness, unhealthy weight or failure to gain weight, tobacco use, or African American or Native American race. The health care authority shall prioritize evidence-based practices for delivery of maternity support services. To the extent practicable, the health care authority shall develop a mechanism to increase federal funding for maternity support services by leveraging local public funding for those services.

(16) $170,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014, $121,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2015, and $292,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely to implement Engrossed Substitute House Bill No. 1519 (service coordination organizations) and Second Substitute Senate Bill No. 5732 (behavioral health services).

At no time will a managed care organization be at risk for or have any claim to the supplemental payment portion of the rate which will be reconciled to ensure accurate payment and full pass through of the obligated funds. For any services eligible for encounter payments, as defined in the medicaid state plan, managed care organizations shall be required to pay at least the full published encounter rates directly to each clinic or center, and payments will be reconciled on at least an annual basis between the managed care organization and the authority, with final review and approval by the authority. At the option of any clinic, the enhancement payment can be received from the managed care organization on a per member per month basis for all assigned managed care enrollees in an amount prescribed by the authority. Nothing in this section is intended to disrupt mutually agreeable contractual arrangements between managed care organizations and clinics that impact how the standard payment for services is paid. The authority will require participating managed care organizations to reimburse federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics for clean claims in strict adherence to the timeliness of payment standards established under contract and specified for the medicaid fee-for-service program in section 1902(a)(37) of the social security act (42 U.S.C. 1396a(a)(37)), 42 C.F.R. Sec. 447.46, and specified for health carriers in WAC 284-43-321. The authority shall exercise all necessary options under its existing sanctions policy to enforce timely payment of claims. The authority shall ensure necessary staff and resources are identified to actively monitor and enforce the timeliness and accuracy of payments to federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics. By January 1, 2014, and after collaboration with federally qualified health centers, rural health clinics, managed care plans, and the centers for medicare and medicaid services, the authority will produce a report that provides options for a new payment methodology that rewards innovation and outcomes over volume of services delivered, and which maintains the integrity of the rural health clinic and federally qualified health center programs as outlined under federal law. The report will detail necessary federal authority for implementation and provide the benefits and drawbacks of each option.

(46) $3,605,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 is provided solely to proportionally reduce the amounts that rural health clinics owe the state under the calendar year 2009 recoupment.

(47) Sufficient amounts are appropriated in this section to remove the mental health visit limit and to provide the shingles vaccine and screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment benefits that are available in the medicaid alternative benefit plan in the current medicaid benefit plan beginning January 1, 2014. The authority shall monitor the costs of the habilitative benefit as part of the forecasting process but shall not provide this benefit in the current medicaid benefit plan without a direct appropriation in the omnibus appropriations act.

(48) The appropriations in this section reflect savings and efficiencies achieved by modifying dispensing methods of contraceptive drugs. The authority must make arrangements for all medicaid programs offered through managed care plans or fee-for-service programs to require dispensing of contraceptive drugs with a one-year supply provided at one time unless a patient requests a smaller supply or the prescribing physician instructs that the patient must receive a smaller supply. Contracts with managed care plans must allow on-site dispensing of the prescribed contraceptive drugs at family planning clinics. Dispensing practices must follow clinical guidelines for appropriate prescribing and dispensing to ensure the health of the patient while maximizing access to effective contraceptive drugs.

(49)(a) $75,000 of the general fund--state appropriation for fiscal year 2014 and $75,000 of the general fund--federal appropriation are provided solely for preparing options with an expert consultant for possible implementation of a targeted premium assistance program and possible implementation of the federal basic health option. $75,000 of the amounts appropriated in this subsection is provided solely for the development of options related to the targeted premium assistance program. The authority shall develop options for a waiver request to the federal centers for medicare and medicaid services to implement a targeted premium assistance program for the expansion adults, identified in section 1902(a)(10)(A)(i)(VIII) of the social security act, with incomes above one hundred percent of the federal poverty level, and for children covered in the children's health insurance program with incomes above two hundred percent of the federal poverty level, with a goal of providing seamless coverage through the health benefit exchange and improving opportunities for families to be covered in the same health plans. The options must include the possibility of applying premiums for individuals and cost-sharing that may exceed the five percent of family income cap under federal law, and the options must include recommendations to make the targeted premium assistance program cost neutral. The authority shall submit a report on the options to the legislature and the governor by January 1, 2014. The authority is encouraged to be creative, use subject matter experts, and exhaust all possible options to achieve cost neutrality. The report shall also include a detailed plan and timeline. $75,000 of the amounts appropriated in this subsection is provided solely for the development of options related to the federal basic health option. The authority shall prepare options for implementing the federal basic health option as federal guidance becomes available. The authority shall submit a report on the options to the legislature and the governor by January 1, 2014, or ninety days following the release of federal guidance. The report must include a comparison of the premiums and cost-sharing under the federal basic health option with the premium assistance options described in this subsection, options for implementing the federal basic health option in combination with a premium assistance program, a detailed fiscal analysis for each coverage approach, including the estimated costs for system design and implementation, and information about impacted populations.

(b) Where possible, the authority shall leverage the same expert consultants to review each proposal and compare and contrast the approaches to ensure seamless coordination with the health benefit exchange.

(c) The authority shall collaborate with the joint select committee on health care oversight in the development of these options.

The capacity provided at local correctional facilities must be for offenders whom the department of corrections defines as medium or lower security offenders. Programming provided for inmates held in local jurisdictions is included in the rate, and details regarding the type and amount of programming, and any conditions regarding transferring offenders will be negotiated with the department as part of any contract. Local jurisdictions must provide health care to offenders that meet standards set by the department. The local jail will provide all medical care including unexpected emergent care. The department must utilize a screening process to ensure that offenders with existing extraordinary medical/mental health needs are not transferred to local jail facilities.

The office of financial management shall work with other agencies to prepare a plan that identifies savings under this subsection (1) and reduces allotments or allocations accordingly to achieve any savings identified in the plan.

(2) To facilitate the transfer of moneys to agencies from dedicated other funds and accounts, the state treasurer shall transfer sufficient moneys from dedicated funds or accounts from which savings are achieved in accordance with schedules developed by the office of financial management consistent with the savings identified under subsection (1) of this section.
