Chapter 388-877A, 877B WAC

RCW 71.24.385 authorizes a supportive housing services program and a supported employment services program to be developed to serve individuals receiving behavioral health services. Programs for supportive housing services and supported employment services are included as part of Washington state’s Medicaid Transformation Waiver, which was approved on January 9, 2017. These proposed rules will allow the department to certify these services when a licensed behavioral health agency applies and qualifies for certification.

Chapter 388-112A WAC

The purpose of this proposal is to update the rules for long-term care worker training requirements and home care aide certification, update the provisions in specialty training curriculum and the requirements for instructors, and to add a new category of training and certification requirements for long-term care workers in enhanced services facilities. This proposal replaces the existing chapter 388-112 WAC with the more current chapter 388-112A WAC. The entire new chapter 388-112A WAC is organized to provide clarity in long-term care worker training, certification, curricula, and instructor requirements.
