Effective October 1, 2013

WAC 182-505-0220 REPEALED -- Definitions for premium-based healthcare coverage under programs included in apple health for kids.



The following definitions, as well as those found in WAC 388-538-0050  and in 388-500-0005  Medical Definitions, apply to premium-based coverage under programs included in apple health for kids.

"Creditable coverage" means most types of public and private health coverage, except Indian Health Services, that provides access to physicians, hospitals, laboratory services, and radiology services.  This term applies to the coverage whether or not the coverage is equivalent to that offered under premium-based programs included in apple health for kids.  "Creditable coverage" is described in 42 U.S.C. Sec. 1397jj.

"Employer-sponsored dependent coverage" means creditable health coverage for dependents offered by a family member's employer or union, for which the employer or union may contribute in whole or part towards the premium.  Extensions of such coverage (e.g., COBRA extensions) also qualify as employer-sponsored dependent coverage as long as there remains a contribution toward the premiums by the employer or union.
