(Aging and Disability Services Administration)
Effective Date of Rule: July 1, 2008.
Purpose: The department is adding the residential algorithm to chapter 388-828 WAC. The residential algorithm determines the residential service levels of support for clients receiving supported living, group home, group training home, and companion home residential services. The department is amending the following sections to include references to the residential algorithm and the individual and family services algorithm: WAC 388-828-1060, 388-828-5020, 388-828-5140, 388-828-5520, and 388-828-8020. The department is amending the following sections to maintain consistency with the DDD computer based assessment, agency standards, and to correct references to other rules: WAC 388-828-1480, 388-828-1540, 388-828-1640, and 388-828-5940.
These rules incorporate the following emergency rules:
• WAC 388-828-5080 filed as WSR 08-05-021 which amends the WAC to accurately reflect the protective supervision age-based score adjustment.
• WAC 388-828-1200 through 388-828-1300 filed as WSR 08-07-018 which amends the WAC to remove penalties for clients and their families that decline to provide income information when receiving the DDD assessment.
• WAC 388-828-5360 filed as WSR 08-08-039 which amends the back-up caregiver availability table. The department will propose the other emergency rules included in WSR 08-08-039 when it proposes rules for the individual and family services program.
