PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
SOCIAL AND HEALTH SERVICES
(Aging and Long-Term Support Administration)
Subject of Possible Rule Making: Amending chapter 388-71 WAC, Home and community services and programs.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 74.08.090, 74.09.520.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is amending chapter 388-71 WAC, specifically the home care referral registry (HCRR), in order to make program revisions by bringing the HCRR WAC into alignment with the individual provider WAC. Rules pertaining to the HCRR's individual providers must reflect changes to the individual provider WAC that went into effect January 2013. Other related changes that arise during this rule making may be incorporated. Other WAC changes may need to be updated as a result of this rule making.
Process for Developing New Rule: DSHS welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. Anyone interested should contact the staff person identified below. At a later date, DSHS will file a proposal with the office of the code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone who requests a copy.
Interested parties can participate in the decision to adopt the new rule and formulation of the proposed rule before publication by contacting Angel Sulivan, P.O. Box 45600, Olympia, WA 98504-5600, phone (360) 725-2495, fax (360) 407-7582, TTY (360) 493-2637, e-mail email@example.com.
