WAC 388-447-0110

Effective January 1, 2014

WAC 388-447-0110 When does my eligibility for referral to the housing and essential needs (HEN) program end?

  1. If we determine you are incapacitated and you meet the eligibility requirements in WAC 388-400-0070, you are eligible for referral to the housing and essential needs (HEN) program for a maximum period of twelve months. This is your incapacity authorization period.
  2. Your HEN referral eligibility stops at the end of your incapacity authorization period unless you provide current medical evidence that demonstrates there was no material improvement in your impairment. No material improvement means that your impairment continues to meet the incapacity criteria detailed in WAC 388-447-0001.
  3. The medical evidence must meet the criteria defined in WAC 388-447-0010.
  4. We use medical evidence received after your incapacity authorization period has ended when:
    1. The delay was not due to your failure to cooperate;
    2. We receive the evidence within thirty days of the end of your incapacity authorization period; and
    3. The evidence meets the incapacity criteria in WAC 388-447-0001.
  5. Even if your condition has not improved, you aren't eligible for referral to the HEN program when:
    1. We receive current medical evidence that doesn't meet the incapacity criteria in WAC 388-447-0001; or
    2. We determine the prior decision that your condition met incapacity requirements was incorrect because:
      1. The information we had was incorrect or not enough to show incapacity; or
      2. We didn't apply the rules correctly to the information we had at that time.
