WAC 182-16-2100

How to request a review of an initial order resulting from a brief adjudicative proceeding.

(1) An appellant who has received an initial order upholding an employing agency decision, PEBB program decision, or a decision made by PEBB program contracted vendor, may request review of the initial order by the authority. The appellant must file a written request for review of the initial order or by making an oral request for review of the initial order with the public employees benefits board (PEBB) appeals unit within twenty-one days after service of the initial order. The written request for review of the initial order must be provided using the contact information included in the initial order. If the appellant fails to request review of the initial order within twenty-one days, the order becomes the final order without any further action by the authority.
(2) Upon timely request by the appellant, a review of an initial order will be performed by one or more review officers designated by the director of the authority.
(3) If the parties have not requested review, the authority may review an order resulting from a brief adjudicative proceeding on its own motion, and without notice to the parties, but it may not take action on review less favorable to any party than the initial order without giving that party notice and an opportunity to explain that party's view of the matter.
