Permanent Adoption (CR103P)

182-503-0005 Washington Apple Health - How to apply

Purpose: The agency is amending these rules to include Tailored Supports for Older Adults (TSOA) in subsection (5). The agency is also amending the rules to clarify both who may apply and language regarding the application process for these programs, and to update a website. In addition, the agency added a new subsection (11) to make it clear that authorized representatives may apply on the applicant’s behalf. (WSR 18-11-071)

182-550-2900 Payment limits - Inpatient hospital services
182-550-3000 Payment method 
182-550-3840 Payment adjustment for potentially preventable readmissions

Purpose: The agency is repealing WAC 182-550-3840 and restoring its former policy regarding 14-day readmissions to WAC 182-550-2900 and WAC 182-550-3000. The agency is making these changes because it has determined that restoring the 14-day readmission rule is the most clinically sound and cost-effective approach to managing readmissions.
