WAC 388-845-1610, 1615

The department is proposing to amend these rules to remove references to overnight planned respite (OPR), which were mistakenly added to the sections under permanent rules filed previously as WSR 16-17-003. OPR is still an available service and is not impacted by these amendments. Other changes to these rules clarify language.

Chapter 388-827 WAC

The department is proposing to amend chapter 388-827 WAC to improve clarity and update policy. In accordance with ESSB 6052, Section 205, 64th Legislature (2015) and SSA-authorized State Plan Amendments, these amendments offer State Supplementary Payment Program (SSP) to clients who received prevocational services as of September 1, 2015. A State Plan Amendment was authorized by the Social Security Administration which added Pre-Vocational Legacy as an SSP payment. In order to keep in compliance with the State Plan, these rules are being updated. In addition, the federal government requires that the department meet the SSP maintenance of effort (MOE).
