Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 388-828-1500 When does DDD conduct a reassessment?, 388-828-1520 Where is the DDD assessment and reassessment administered?, and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 71A.12.030, 71A.10.020(1), and 71A.10.015.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The developmental disabilities administration proposes to make changes to these sections to more closely align our WAC with the 42 C.F.R. 441.540 (a)(3) requirement that allows the individual to select a time and location of their convenience for assessments.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
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.
