Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is planning to create a new chapter in Title 388 WAC and amend sections in chapters 388-71, 388-106, 388-113, and 388-114 WAC, and other related rules as may be required.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The department is considering making amendments to sections in chapters 388-71, 388-106, 388-113, and 388-114 WAC, and is also considering creating a new chapter in Title 388 WAC as a reference for the individual providers employed by the consumer directed employer (CDE). The department is planning these changes based on the implementation of the CDE and the change from individual providers contracted with the department to individual providers employed by the consumer directed employer as a result of the passage of SB [ESSB] 6199 in 2018.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: Not applicable.

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.
