Guardianships - deductions to participation, room and board
Purpose: Describe and clarify rules regarding guardianship-related deductions to a client’s participation or room & board (R&B).
Upon receipt of a court order: if it was signed on or after June 1, 2018, or if the client began LTSS after June 1, 2018, allow the deductions per WAC 182-513-1530 or the court order, whichever is less.
Most (if not all) clients subject to chapter 388-79A WAC have current allowed deductions. Continue to allow these deductions until a new court order is received. Ensure an ETR is approved prior to allowing or continuing to allow a deduction to R&B.
Forward any ETR requests from the guardian to your regional guardianship designee.
