Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 182-532 WAC, Reproductive health/family planning only/TAKE CHARGE, WAC 182-532-720, and other rules as appropriate.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Public Law 111-148); RCW 41.05.021; and section 213(29), chapter 4, Laws of 2013.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The health care authority (HCA) must implement federal requirements under the Affordable Care Act, and the changes under the legislative session of 2013 concerning eligibility for TAKE CHARGE in accordance with the federal waiver amendments. During the course of this review, the HCA may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.

After the early review, HCA will send a notice of proposed rule making (CR-102) to everyone receiving this notice and anyone who requests a copy.
