Effective October 1, 2013.
The sections that follow describe the eligibility requirements for the Washington apple health (WAH) modified adjusted gross income (MAGI)-based long-term care program for children and adults who are admitted for a long-term stay to a medical institution, an inpatient psychiatric facility or an institution for mental diseases (IMD):
General eligibility requirements for the WAH MAGI-based long-term care program;
Resource eligibility for WAH MAGI-based long-term care program;
WAH MAGI-based long-term care programs for adults twenty-one years of age or older;
WAH MAGI-based long-term care program for young adults nineteen and twenty years of age;
WAH MAGI-based long-term care program for children eighteen years of age or younger;
How the agency or its designee determines how much of an institutionalized person's income must be paid towards the cost of care for the WAH MAGI-based long-term care program; and
When an involuntary commitment to Eastern or Western State Hospital is covered by Washington apple health.
Recipients of a noninstitutional WAH children's program as described in WAC 182-505-0210
do not need to submit a new application for long-term care coverage when admitted to an institution. The agency or its designee treats the admittance to the institution as a change of circumstances and determines eligibility based upon the anticipated length of stay.
