To correct accidental oversight during the rulemaking for this WAC 284-43-5642(3)(b)(i). The language was likely meant to say that the carrier must cover hospitalization for MH/SUD, but cannot include it in the actuarial value calculation for the Hospitalization EHB (it must be included in the calculation for actuarial value of the MH/SUD EHB).
