Current through Register Vol. 21-24, December 15, 2021

(1) This section applies only when department rules allow review of a department dispute decision under this section. The deputy assistant secretary of the health and recovery services administration (HRSA) or designee conducts the review.
(2) Providers and former providers may request a review of a department dispute decision. The request must be in writing and sent to: HRSA, Attn: Deputy Assistant Secretary, PO Box 45504, Olympia, WA 98504-5504. The department must receive the written dispute review request within twenty-eight calendar days of the date on the department's written dispute decision.

The dispute review conference is not governed by the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW. If the deputy or designee chooses to schedule a dispute review conference, the deputy or designee will conduct the conference within ninety calendar days of the dispute review request unless the deputy or designee and the party requesting review agree to an extension.
(4) The deputy or designee will issue a dispute review decision to the provider or former provider requesting review within thirty calendar days of receiving the dispute review request or within thirty calendar days of the dispute review conference, whichever is later, unless both parties agree to an extension.
