(1) The standards of payment explained in WAC 388-25-0120
are the basis for the reimbursement rates the department provides for care of children placed in licensed foster care under the department's direct supervision and those children under the supervision of child placing agencies.
(2) The CA social worker must determine the payment plan for all types of family foster care through a review of the needs and resources of each child and the activities of the foster parent which meet those needs.
(3) The CA social worker must discuss any plan above the basic foster care rate with the foster parent so that the foster parent knows:
(a) The basis for payment;
(b) Any increased expectations of the foster parent for service delivery or participation in the case plan for the child; and
(c) The amount included for each item of the child's care.
