What is an emergency service?

(1) Emergency services are respite care, nursing services, or positive behavior support and consultation in response to a single incident, situation, or short-term crisis.
(2) You may be eligible for emergency services if you are age three or older, live with your family, and:
(a) You lose your caregiver due to caregiver hospitalization or death;
(b) There are changes in your caregiver's mental or physical status resulting in your caregiver's inability to perform effectively for you; or
(c) There are significant changes in your emotional or physical condition that require emergency services.
(3) The provider of the service you require to meet your emergent need must meet the provider qualifications required to contract for that specific service under:
(a) WAC 388-832-0155 for respite;
(b) WAC 388-832-0285 for positive behavior support and consultation; and
(c) WAC 388-845-1705 for nursing.
(4) Funds are provided for a limited period not to exceed ninety days.
(5) All requests are reviewed and approved or denied by the regional administrator or designee.
(6) If you or a family situation requires more than ninety days of emergency services, the developmental disabilities administration (DDA) will review DDA services to determine if your need can be met through other services.
(7) You may receive an emergency service before completing a DDA assessment, however the regional administrator or designee may request a DDA assessment for you at any time.
