PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
HEALTH CARE AUTHORITY
[Filed April 1, 2022, 2:31 p.m.]
Subject of Possible Rule Making: WAC 182-130-0100 Family initiated treatment (FIT)—Appropriately trained professional person; other related rules as appropriate.
Reasons Why Rules on this Subject may be Needed and What They Might Accomplish: The authority is amending these rules to fix an error in the final CR-103P rule text filed under WSR 21-18-058. The agency held a public hearing and agreed to a request from the hearing to add psychiatric advanced registered nurse practitioners to the definition of appropriately trained person. The authority agreed; however, the final rule text filed under WSR 21-18-058, effective September 26, 2021, inadvertently did not include the addition of psychiatric advanced registered nurse practitioners. During the course of this review, the health care authority may identify additional related changes that are required in order to improve clarity or update policy.
Other Federal and State Agencies that Regulate this Subject and the Process Coordinating the Rule with These Agencies: The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
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.
