Statutes Authorizing the Agency to Adopt Rules on this Subject: RCW 48.02.060, 48.44.050, and 48.46.200.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: WSR 20-24-070 created WAC 284-30-595 to provide guidance for companies to use and apply implementation credits.

This rule making will specifically define health carriers as a permissibly [permissible] entity within WAC 284-30-595.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: None.
Process for Developing New Rule: Submit written comments by March 12, 2021.
