Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 182-527 WAC, Estate recovery and predeath liens, and other rules as appropriate.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.05.021, 41.05.160.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The agency is amending WAC 182-527-2742 to clarify that individual and family services, and community first choice are subject to estate recovery, and removing Washington medicaid integration partnership because it has been discontinued. The agency is also amending chapter 182-527 WAC to more clearly distinguish between rules that apply to TEFRA liens and rules that apply to estate recovery. During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The office of financial recovery will be included in the rule-making workgroup.
