Subject of Possible Rule Making: Chapter 388-106 WAC, Long-term care services.

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 adopting new rules in chapter 388-106 WAC regarding addition of a new service to the state plan. This new service is called chronic care management (CCM). CCM provides chronic care management to high-cost and high-risk medicaid only clients who meet eligibility criteria and voluntarily agree to participate.

Other policy changes that arise during this rule making may be incorporated. Other WAC chapters 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 these rules. Draft material and information about how to participate may be obtained from the department representative listed below. At a later date, DSHS will file the proposed rules with the office of [the] code reviser with a notice of proposed rule making and send the proposal to everyone currently on the mailing list and anyone else 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, phone (360) 725-2495, fax (360) 407-7582, TTY (360) 493-2637, e-mail
