The Pharmacy Quality Assurance Commission and Department of Health have jointly filed emergency rules to reinstate medication assistance rules as permitted under chapter 69.41 RCW. Specifically, these rules, filed under WSR 21-15-108 establish criteria for medication assistance in community-based and in-home care settings in accordance with RCW 69.41.010(15).
These rules help impacted individuals retain their independence and live in the least restrictive setting, such as their own home, longer by providing means and guidance for medication assistance.
