WAC 182-526-0285

Effective February 1, 2013

WAC 182-526-0285 Orders of dismissal.

1. An order of dismissal is an order sent by the administrative law judge ending the hearing process. The order is entered because the party who requested the hearing withdrew the request, or the ALJ entered an order of default because the party who requested the hearing failed to attend or refused to participate in the hearing (which includes all prehearing conferences). 

 

2. The order of dismissal becomes a final order if no party files a request to vacate the order within twenty-one days after the date the ALJ serves the order of dismissal. A party may request a vacate of the order of dismissal according to WAC 182-526-0290.  

 

3. If the hearing is dismissed because the party who requested the hearing was defaulted because that party did not attend or refused to participate in the hearing, the health care authority or managed care organization action stands unless the hearing is reinstated after a vacate of the order of dismissal under WAC 182-526-0290

 

4. If the hearing is dismissed due to a written agreement between all the parties, the parties must follow the agreement.
