WAC 182-500-0005 Medical Definitions

Chapter 388-500 WAC contains definitions of words and phrases used in rules for medical assistance programs.  When a term is not defined in this chapter, other agency or agency's designee WAC, or state or federal law, the medical definitions found in the Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary will apply.  For general terms not defined in this chapter, other agency or agency's designee WAC, or state or federal law, the definitions in Webster's New World Dictionary apply.  If a definition in this chapter conflicts with a definition in another chapter of Title 388 WAC, the definition in the specific WAC prevails.

This is a reprint of the official rule as published by the Office of the Code Reviser. If there are previous versions of this rule, they can be found using the Legislative Search page.
