PERMANENT RULES

DEPARTMENT OF

SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Health and Recovery Services Administration)

[ Filed September 8, 2008, 2:10 p.m. , effective October 9, 2008 ]


Effective Date of Rule: Thirty-one days after filing.

Purpose: The department recently reorganized and updated chapter 388-544 WAC, Vision care. The permanent rule was filed on June 24, 2008, under WSR 08-14-052. In the newly revised rule, a new section (WAC 388-544-0575 Noncovered vision) was created to replace the repealed WAC 388-544-0475 Noncovered vision. When the permanent rule was filed, the department inadvertently missed listing WAC 388-544-0475 as repealed. This repeal is necessary so that two duplicate noncovered sections do not exist.

Citation of Existing Rules Affected by this Order: Repealing WAC 388-544-0475.
