Chapter 388-828 WAC

DDA is amending this chapter to update the DDA assessment rules to reflect the switch from a desktop application to a web-based application. These changes do not affect any algorithms in the assessment that determine eligibility for a service or a client’s benefit level. DDA also amended the definition of “contracted provider” to include both CDE-employed individual providers. Additional amendments replace outdated terminology, such as “DDD,” “ISP,” “ADSA,” “ICF/MR,” “SSPS,” etc., and update and clarify language that was inaccurate or ambiguous.
