Chapters 388-71, 106, 113, 115 WAC

The department is proposing to amend, repeal, and create new sections in chapters 388-71 WAC, 388-106 WAC, and 388-113 WAC, and create a new chapter 388-115 WAC, Consumer Directed Employer (CDE),  as a reference for the individual providers employed by the CDE. The purpose for making changes is to clarify and consolidate rules related to background checks, disqualifying convictions, and negative actions, and character, competence, and suitability (CC&S) determinations for Home and Community Services, Residential Care Services, and the Developmental Disabilities Administration (DDA). These changes will provide better clarity and understanding for the public and contracted entities, reduce the amount of WAC language across programs, and help preserve the health and safety of our clients. Other provisions related to long-term care worker qualifications and a client’s choice of provider will also be clarified and consolidated.
