(1)(a) The contractor must inform the department of its current electronic mail (email) address at which it wants to receive rate notifications. It is the responsibility of the contractor to inform the department of any changes to the email address at which it wants to receive notice of the department's actions. The department may notify each contractor by email using the contractor's supplied email address of its prospective medicaid payment rate allocation and/or any actions that result in a change to the contractor's prospective medicaid payment rate allocation. The date of the department's notification email will be used to determine whether the notification and the contractor's response met any legal requirements, irrespective of when the contractor read the email.
(b) When the contractor seeks to appeal or take exception to a department action taken under authority of this chapter or chapter 74.46 RCW and eligible for administrative review under WAC 388-96-901, it shall comply with WAC 388-96-904 when requesting an administrative review conference.

Proof of date of receipt of department's notification must be from an independent source that has no stake in the outcome.
(b) When the department has sent notice by certified letter, the department shall deem the contractor to have received the department's notice five calendar days after the date the U.S. Post Office first attempts to deliver the certified letter containing the notice of the department's action(s).
