WAC 388-71-0732

What are the client's hearing rights?

(1) If the department or area agency on aging denies, terminates, or reduces a COPES, RSW, or RCL individual client's adult day care or day health services, the client has the right to an administrative hearing as provided under chapter 388-02 WAC. If a client funded with Senior Citizen Services Act or respite care has a complaint, grievance or dispute, the resolution process is a hearing as outlined in the department's area agency on aging policy and procedure manual chapter 6. The area agency on aging would work with the client through this process.
(2) An adult day care or day health center has those hearing or dispute resolution rights that are afforded under RCW 43.20B.675 and the center's contract with the area agency on aging or the department. An adult day health center has any other applicable hearing or dispute resolution rights under WAC 182-502-0220.
(3) Adult day health centers are subject to all applicable provisions of chapter 182-502 WAC, and the department's aging and long term support administration may exercise the department's authority under that chapter to the same extent as the health care authority.
