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). If no authorization is given for AVS, financial institution verification is requested from the client. At renewal, other resources are verified when questionable or if the client has resources near or above the resource standard.
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.
