Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 182-557-0100 Health home programDefinitions, 182-557-0200 Health home programEligibility, 182-557-0225 Health home servicesMethodology for calculating a person's risk score, and other related rules, as appropriate.
Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 41.05.021, 41.05.160.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The agency is revising these sections to fix outdated hyperlinks and to establish rules to allow for inactive clients to be unenrolled from the health home program. These revisions align with the agency's state plan relating to the removal of clients from the health home program when clients do not participate in the program for a continuous six month period and the client's risk score is less than 1.0 during the continuous six months. During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
Process for Developing New Rule: The agency welcomes the public to take part in developing this rule. If interested, contact the person identified below to receive an early rule draft to review. After the early review, the agency will send a notice of proposed rule making (CR-102) to everyone receiving this notice and 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 Vance Taylor, P.O. Box 42716, Olympia, WA 98504-2716, fax (360) 586-9727, TTY 1-800-848-5429, email
