WAC 388-835-0355

Can a resident trust account be charged for medical services, drugs, therapy and equipment?

(1) Any properly made charge to a resident's trust account for medical services must be supported by a written denial from DSHS.
(2) Any request for additional equipment such as a walker, wheelchair or crutches must have a written denial from DSHS before a resident's trust account can be charged.
(3) A request for physical therapy, certain drugs or other medical services must have a written denial from DSHS before a resident's trust account can be charged.
(4) A written denial from DSHS is not required when the pharmacist verifies a drug is not covered by the program (e.g., items on the FDA list of ineffective or possible effective drugs, nonformulary over-the-counter (OTC) medications such as vitamins, nose drops, etc.) The pharmacist's notation that the program does not cover the drugs is sufficient.
