Consolidated health care rulemaking (R 2020-13)

In 2019 and 2020, the legislature enacted several new laws including SHB 2338, ESHB 2642, ESHB 1879 and SSB 5889 that relate to accessing and receiving health care services and benefits through health plans, short term limited duration medical plans and student health plans. Multiple provisions of the Office of the Insurance Commissioner's (OIC) rules in chapter 284-43 WAC must be amended to be consistent with the new laws. This consolidated rulemaking proceeding is necessary to ensure that rules are adopted by OIC prior to Jan. 1, 2021.

The CR-101 for R 2020-06 and R 2020-10 have been withdrawn.

Sample nondiscrimination notice

The OIC prepared a sample nondiscrimination notice template that allows carriers to comply with both state and federal nondiscrimination notice requirements.
