(e) Meet the criteria in either (e)(i) or (ii) of this subsection:

(2) The department may use preliminary information you provide through a presumptive eligibility screening to determine if you, as the care receiver, meet the eligibility criteria in subsection (1) of this section in order to receive services while the formal eligibility determination is being completed. This is called presumptive eligibility.

(i) The day the decision was made on your TSOA application;
(ii) The date you were confirmed not to meet full functional eligibility criteria; or
(iii) The last day of the month following the month in which your presumptive eligibility services were authorized if you did not submit your TSOA application.
(b) In the event the department implements a wait list under WAC 388-106-1970 for TSOA services, your presumptive eligibility ends.
(c) You may only receive services under presumptive eligibility once within a twenty-four month period.
(d) Under presumptive eligibility, you may receive services as described in WAC 388-106-1915.
