Purpose: The agency is revising the following rules to align with changes to the Foundational Community Supports program protocol that was recently approved by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS): WAC 182-559-100, Foundational community supports program – General; WAC 182-559-150, Foundational community supports program – Definitions; WAC 182-559-200, Foundational community supports program – Eligible providers; WAC 182-559-300, Foundational community supports program – Eligibility; and WAC 182-559-400, Foundational community supports program – Payment. The agency is revising the name of WAC 182-559-300 to reflect that this section contains eligibility for community support services (also known as supportive housing services) only. The agency is adding a new section, WAC 182-559-350, Foundational community supports program – Eligibility for supported employment services, to provide more detailed information as required by the protocol. The agency is adding new WAC 182-559-600, Foundational community supports program – Grievance and appeals system, to clarify the grievance and appeals process for clients receiving services through the Foundational Community Supports program. In order to receive federal funding for the Foundational Community Supports program, the rules must align with the CMS protocol and be in place before December 31, 2017. (WSR 18-02-064)
