Long-term Services and Supports (LTSS) verification requirements
For long-term service and support programs, follow WAC 182-503-0050. Verification of gross income, post eligibility deductions, and transfer of assets during the 5 year look back is required.
At application and renewal, financial institution balances are requested through the Asset Verification System (AVS). For applications, if no authorization is given the case will be denied. At renewal, a new authorization is not needed, however, if authorization has never been given, a client must authorize AVS or their services will be terminated. Authorizations for AVS remain in effect until revoked in writing by the applicant, spouse, or financially responsible person, the client is no longer eligible for coverage, or the application is withdrawn or denied. For more information regarding Asset Verification please see WAC 182-503-0055.
Use equal access policies and procedures if there is no response to the written request verification needed to determine eligibility or maintain eligibility for LTSS.
