What referral to the housing and essential needs (HEN) program rules may the department implement during a state of emergency?

During a declared state of emergency, the department may implement the following rules to help mitigate impacts to clients:
(1) Postpone review of your HEN referral program eligibility beyond the twelve month period if the department determines you are not eligible for the aged, blind, or disabled (ABD) program at the time of your incapacity review. The postponement of this review may occur retroactively to the date the governor declares a state of emergency.
(2) Accept a diagnosis of a medically determinable impairment from a "supplemental medical evidence" source in subsection (2) of WAC 388-447-0005, or the predictive risk intelligence system (PRISM).
(3) Accept functional medical evidence beyond ninety days of the date of application or incapacity review, or otherwise waive the requirement of WAC 388-447-0010 (3)(c) in its entirety.
(4) Suspend or waive eligibility review requirements detailed in WAC 388-434-0005 for referral to the HEN program.
(5) Suspend or waive mid-certification review requirements detailed in WAC 388-418-0001 for referral to the HEN program.
