This amended rule and new rule are necessary to comply with federal Medicaid law and receive federal funding. The changes clarify the care provided at residential habilitation centers by cross-referencing the level of care for nursing facilities under WAC 388-106-0355, and by incorporating language
from CFR to describe active treatment services in intermediate care facilities for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ICF/IIDs).
