The department is amending rules to revise the assessment process for allocating personal care hours to disabled children as a result of the Washington State Supreme Court decision regarding the Samantha A. v. DSHS. Additionally, effective February 1, 2012, the department eliminated the add-on hours for off-site laundry and add-on hours to those clients living more than 45 minutes from essential services as a result of the department's need to stay within budget appropriations.
