WAC 388-845-3080

What if my needs exceed the maximum yearly funding limit or the scope of services under the basic plus waiver?

(1) If you are on the basic plus waiver and your assessed need for services exceeds the maximum permitted, DDA will make the following efforts to meet your health and welfare needs:
(a) Identify more available natural supports;
(b) Initiate an exception to rule to access available nonwaiver services not included in the basic plus waiver other than natural supports;
(c) Authorize emergency assistance up to six thousand dollars per year if your needs meet the definition of emergency assistance in WAC 388-845-0800.
(2) If emergency assistance and other efforts are not sufficient to meet your needs, you will be offered:
(a) An opportunity to apply for an alternate waiver that has the services you need;
(b) Priority for placement on the alternative waiver when there is capacity to add people to that waiver;
(c) Placement in an ICF/ID.
(3) If none of the options in subsections (1) and (2) above is successful in meeting your health and welfare needs, DDA may terminate your waiver eligibility.
(4) If you are terminated from a waiver, you will remain eligible for nonwaiver DDA services but access to state-only funded DDA services is limited by availability of funding.
