PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

LABOR AND INDUSTRIES

[ Filed March 12, 2007, 1:10 p.m. , effective July 1, 2007 ]


Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2007.

Purpose: Chapter 296-17 WAC, General reporting rules, audit and recordkeeping, rates and rating system for Washington workers' compensation insurance. This rule-making order will adopt a reduction in the medical aid premium base rates for work done during 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.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Amending 2, WAC 296-17-895 and 296-17-89502; and new rule adopted WAC 296-17-89504 Horse racing industry industrial insurance, medical aid, and supplemental pension by class.

Statutory Authority for Adoption: RCW 51.06.035, 51.08.010, 51.04.020.

Adopted under notice filed as WSR 06-22-108 on November 1, 2006.

Changes Other than Editing from Proposed to Adopted Version: Two paragraphs are added to the three amended sections that explain the process by which the medical aid reduction will occur.

Number of Sections Adopted in Order to Comply with Federal Statute: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; Federal Rules or Standards: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0; or Recently Enacted State Statutes: New 0, Amended 0, Repealed 0.

For work performed during the period July 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, and reported and paid in full to the department no later than April 30, 2008, employers shall not be required to pay nor shall they be entitled to deduct from workers' pay, medical aid premium; such premiums shall be deemed to have been paid by the department out of the medical aid fund.
In calendar year 2008, the department will pay such dividends from the accident fund to employers not participating in the retrospective rating program during the period July 1, 2007, through December 31, 2007, as the department's actuaries determine to be necessary to equalize the proportion of losses funded between retro and nonretro employers.
