TRANSFER OF CHAPTER 245-02 WAC TO CHAPTER 246-25 WAC


RCW 43.72.310 authorizes the transfer of antitrust immunity and competitive oversight from the Health Care Policy Board to the Department of Health. Amendments to RCW 43.72.310 during the 1997 legislative session transferred the authority to implement and enforce antitrust immunity and competitive oversight regulations from the Health Care Policy Board to the Department of Health.

Please transfer the rules relating to antitrust immunity and competitive oversight which were previously under the authority of the Health Care Policy Board (no longer in existence) to a new Department of Health, chapter 246-25 WAC.
