Subject of Possible Rule Making: The department is proposing to amend WAC 388-71-0515 What are the responsibilities of an individual provider when providing services to a client?, and other related rules as may be required.
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 amending WAC 388-71-0515(11) to modify the language so that it will accurately reflect a change in the way individual providers will report the time they have worked. This change is based on payment moving from the social services payment system to the provider compensation subsystem that will be implemented in 2016.
Process for Developing New Rule: DSHS welcomes the public to take part in developing the rules. 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. A copy of the proposal will be sent to everyone on the mailing list and to anyone 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 Stacy Graff, Program Manager Medicaid Unit, ALTSA/HCS, P.O.
