SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Medical Assistance Administration)
Date of Adoption: December 29, 2000.
Purpose: To correct Medical Assistance Administration (MAA) rules that contain cross-references to rules that have been renumbered or repealed and written into new chapters. MAA recently reorganized and rewrote most of its rules so they are located in one area of Title 388 WAC. In doing so, some cross-references to rules are now incorrect; this amendment updates those cross-references so users may be referred to the correct rule.
