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 modifying the family planning only program and take charge program sections to: (1) Meet clinical standards, (2) align with current eligibility and provider enrollment policies, and (3) assure compliance with the recently approved federal extension of the Washington family planning only program (demonstration project) granted under the authority of Section 1115(a) of the Social Security Act. During the course of this review, the agency may identify additional changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
