General Health Care Authority rulemaking

This page includes all of the current rule making activity for General Health Care Authority.

Single Bed Certification
Affected WAC: 182-100-0200
Description: This rulemaking is required to comply with the requirements in 2ESHB 1388 which changed the designation of the state Behavioral Health Services, effective July 1, 2018. The Single Bed Certification rules were previously filed under Preproposal Statement of Inquiry WSR-18-14-080 and Emergency Rulemaking Order 19-13-057, as WAC 182-538D-0526. The rulemaking under WSR 18-14-080 has progressed to a public hearing under WSR 19-20-125. Rulemaking for Single Bed Certification will be continued through a separate rulemaking progress as the agency has additional work to do to develop the program. Single Bed Certification has also been renumbered from WAC 182-538D-0526 to WAC 182-100-0200 to reflect that it is not solely a service under Medicaid.
