What are DSHS responsibilities when it decides to redetermine a resident eligibility for ICF/ID services?

DSHS must send a hearing request form with the notice of redetermination.
(1) If the resident requests a hearing within the thirty-day time period, DSHS must not redetermine eligibility until a hearing decision is reached or appeal rights have been exhausted unless redetermination is warranted by the resident's health or safety needs.
(2) If the secretary or the secretary's designee concludes that redetermination is not appropriate, no further action will be taken to redetermine eligibility unless there is a change in the situation or circumstances. If there is a change in the situation or circumstances, the request may be resubmitted.
(3) If the secretary or the secretary's designee affirms the decision to change the resident's eligibility and no judicial review is filed within thirty days of the receipt of notice of redetermination, the department must proceed with the planned action.
(4) If the secretary or secretary's designee affirms the decision to change the resident's eligibility and a request for judicial review has been filed, any proposed redetermination must be delayed until the appeal process is complete unless a delay jeopardizes the resident's health or safety.
