What must the self-insurer do when the department denies the vocational rehabilitation plan?
The vocational rehabilitation plan may be denied if the plan does not meet the requirements in WAC 296-19A-100
and the department cannot make a determination based on the information provided.
If the plan does not meet the requirements or is denied as incomplete, the self-insurer must correct the plan and/or obtain the information requested by the department, and resubmit the completed plan and an updated Vocational Services Reporting Form.
If the plan cannot be corrected and/or completed and submitted to the department within ninety calendar days after the date the department determined the worker was eligible for vocational plan development services, the self-insurer must, prior to the ninetieth day, submit a Self-Insurance Vocational Reporting Form and the vocational rehabilitation provider's request for an extension as required in WAC 296-19A-094
