Implementation Plan

This report is the required implementation plan of Chapter 354, Laws of 1999, (2SHB 1116) requiring DSHS to disclose in advance the terms and conditions of estate recovery, provide a written description of community services options, develop a plan to notify clients or their representative quarterly of services used and associated costs which could be charged against the estate, and submit the implementation plan by December 1999 to the appropriate legislative and executive committees. It describes DSHS' actions to assure that all long-term care clients understand the estate recovery requirement and to provide written material to clients describing community service options. Also, it presents three options and associated costs for quarterly notification to clients showing services used, plus the associated costs that may be charged against clients' estates.
