Original Notice.

Preproposal statement of inquiry was filed as WSR 06-07-138.

Title of Rule and Other Identifying Information: Industrial insurance premium rates, chapter 296-17 WAC, General reporting rules, classifications, audit and record keeping, rates and rating system for Washington workers' compensation insurance.

Hearing Location(s): On December 13, 2006, at 1:00 p.m., at the Department of Labor and Industries, Tukwila Service Location, 12806 Gateway Drive, Seattle, WA 98168-1050, phone (206) 835-1000; on December 14, 2006, at 10:00 a.m., at the Ridpath Hotel, 515 West Sprague Avenue, Spokane, WA 99201, phone (509) 838-2711; on December 15, 2006, at 10:00 a.m., at the Department of Labor and Industries, Room S117, 7273 Linderson Way S.W., Tumwater, WA 98501, phone (360) 902-5799; and on December 18, 2006, at 1:00 p.m., at the Department of Labor and Industries, Yakima Service Location, 15 West Yakima Avenue, Yakima, WA 98902, phone (509) 454-3700.

Date of Intended Adoption: January 24, 2007.

Submit Written Comments to: Ronald Moore, Acting Programing Manager, Employer Services, P.O. Box 44140, Olympia, WA 98504-4140, e-mail mooa235@lni.wa.gov, fax (360) 902-4729, by 5 p.m., December 18, 2006.

Assistance for Persons with Disabilities: Contact Office of Information and Assistance, TTY (360) 602-5797.

Purpose of the Proposal and Its Anticipated Effects, Including Any Changes in Existing Rules: This proposal will reduce the medical aid premium base rates for the six months beginning July 1, 2007, which will ultimately reduce the medical aid contingency reserve. During this time period, medical aid premiums will not be assessed for employers and workers and therefore it is anticipated that this will reduce the balance of the medical aid fund by $315 million.

As a result of lower medical aid (account 608) premiums collected the accident fund (account 609) premium base rates would be reduced because of the impact on anticipated retrospective rating refunds. These refunds are a percentage of the accident plus medical aid premiums, and are expected to decrease by $30 million. As a result, the upfront premium income for the accident fund is expected to decrease by $30 million. Associated changes in the retrospective rating size tables are also included in this rule making. Because of the potential impact on the total of retrospective rating refunds we are specifically interested in receiving comments and input from retrospective rating participants.

Reasons Supporting Proposal: The medical aid fund, which is paid half by workers and half by employers, as of June 30, 2006, has a contingency reserve of close to $1.1 billion. This equates to approximately 38% of total medical aid liabilities and is more money than is felt necessary to maintain solvency in the medical aid fund.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 51.06.035 Base rates, 51.32.073 Supplemental pension, 51.08.010 Retrospective rating, and 51.04.020(1) General authority.

Statute Being Implemented: RCW 51.16.035, 51.32.073, 51.18.010, and 51.04.020(1).

Rule is not necessitated by federal law, federal or state court decision.

Name of Proponent: Department of labor and industries, governmental.

Name of Agency Personnel Responsible for Drafting: Bill Moomau, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4774; Implementation: Ronald Moore, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4748; and Enforcement: Bob Malooly, Tumwater, Washington, (360) 902-4209.

No small business economic impact statement has been prepared under chapter 19.85 RCW. In this rule making the agency is exempt from preparing a small business economic impact statement when the proposed rules set or adjust fees or rates pursuant to legislative standards. This exemption is described in RCW 34.05.310 (4)(f).

A cost-benefit analysis is not required under RCW 34.05.328. In this rule making, the agency is exempt from conducting a cost-benefit analysis since the proposed rules set or adjust fees or rates pursuant to legislative standards described in RCW 34.05.328 (5)(b)(vi).
