Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 388-845-2280 What is wellness education?, 388-845-2285 Are there limits to wellness education?, and other related rules as may be required.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 71A.12.030.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services approved an additional service to the individual and family services 1915(c) waiver. Wellness education was added and allows the developmental disabilities administration (DDA) to provide wellness information to waiver participants to assist them in achieving goals identified during their person-centered planning process.
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 Alan McMullen, DDA, P.O. Box 45310, Olympia, WA 98504-5310, phone (360) 725-3524, fax (360) 407-0955, TTY 1-800-833-6388, e-mail
