When may the department, AAA, or department designee reject your choice of an individual provider?

The department, AAA, or department designee may reject your request to have a family member or other person serve as your individual provider if the case manager has a reasonable, good faith belief that the person is, or will be, unable to appropriately meet your needs. Examples of circumstances indicating an inability to meet your needs include, but are not limited to:
(1) Evidence of misuse of alcohol, controlled substances, or legend drugs;
(2) A reported history of domestic violence committed by the individual provider, no-contact orders entered against the individual provider, or criminal conduct committed by the individual provider (whether or not the conduct is automatically disqualifying under WAC 388-71-0540 or under chapter 388-113 WAC);
(3) A report from any knowledgeable person that the individual provider lacks the ability or willingness to provide adequate care;
(4) The individual provider has other employment or responsibilities that prevent or interfere with the provision of required services; or
(5) Excessive commuting distance that would make it impractical for the individual provider to provide services as they are needed and outlined in your service plan.
