The health care authority provides services for the state of Washington under Title XIX of the federal Social Security Act.
(2) DCS must provide HCA with the following information:
(a) Title IV-A case number, Title IV-E foster care case number, medicaid number or the individual's Social Security number;
(b) Name of the obligated parent;
(c) Social Security number of the obligated parent;
(d) Name and Social Security number of the children named in the order;
(e) Home address of the obligated parent;
(f) Name and address of the obligated parent's employer;
(g) Information regarding the obligated parent's health insurance policy; and
(h) Whether the children named in the order are covered by the policy.
(3) DCS must periodically communicate with HCA to determine if there have been any lapses (stops and starts) in the obligated parent's health care coverage for medicaid applicants.
(4) Before DCS may serve a notice of support owed under WAC 388-14A-3312(1)(b) to establish an obligated parent's monthly payment toward the premium paid by the state for coverage, HCA must provide information regarding the premium paid for each child covered by the notice.
(a) DCS distributes to HCA any collections based on the obligation established under WAC 388-14A-3312(1)(b) when the children receive state-financed medical coverage through the department under chapter 74.09 RCW for which there is an assignment.
(b) Such collections are retained by HCA to reimburse the state, subject to the limitations in WAC 388-14A-2035(4).
