DEPARTMENT OF

LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed November 15, 2006, 12:13 p.m. ]

This letter is official notification that the department has withdrawn its rule-making proposal (CR-102) on WAC 296-20-03014 Which drugs have specific limitations. The proposed rule was published in WSR 06-21-092. Its purpose was to clarify the department's and self-insurers' coverage of intrathecal pumps and medications administered via the pump.

The department's primary concern continues to be safety and effectiveness for injured workers and victims of crime. This proposed rule making is being withdrawn pending review of safety data from the manufacturers of this device and the Food and Drug Administration.

If you have any questions about the withdrawal of this proposed rule making, please contact Jamie Lifka at (360) 902-4941 or Josh Swanson at (360) 902-6805.
