Chapters 388-865, 877, and 877A WAC

The proposed new rules inform individuals applying for, eligible for, or receiving mental health services of their right to express dissatisfaction regarding a mental health service and how to use the Regional Support Network's (RSN's) grievance system. The rules inform consumers of behavioral health services how to use the Division of Behavioral Health and Recovery's (DBHR's) complaint process, and update and clarify individual rights specific to the Medicaid program. The department is repealing WAC 388-865-0255 that is outdated due to these new rules.

Chapter 388-106 WAC

The department is amending and adding new sections to WAC 388-106, the Volunteer Chore program, as it was changed to Volunteer Services per Engrossed Substitute Senate Bill 6444 (Supplemental Operating Budget). The intent in the name change was to broaden the types of assistance available to eligible clients. Current rules limit services to a traditional list of chore-type services. Without revised rules, volunteers supervised by contracted agencies managing the program are unable to provide support services in keeping with the intent of ESSB 6444.
