Payment schedule

For the Crime Victims Compensation Program:


Billing Crime Victims

Simplified Provider Registration & Billing.

The victim can’t be billed for services if the claim has not reached the maximum benefit. For claims exceeding the maximum, $150,000, the victim is responsible for expenses not previously covered under the claim.

"a client must not be billed for treatment of his or her accepted condition. All copayments, deductibles or out of pocket expenses not covered by primary insurance should be included in your billings to the department" WAC 296‑30‑085(2) (

"Providers must determine if any public or private insurance benefits are available before billing the department. Available public or private insurance must be billed first and a copy of the insurance explanation of benefits must be attached to billings submitted to the department" WAC 296‑30‑085(2) (

A victim isn't responsible for costs even if they are higher than what the Crime Victims Compensation Program pays:

"When treating a crime victim who comes under our jurisdiction, you agree to accept and comply with the department's rules and fees" WAC 296‑30‑081(1) (

"You must inform the victim of his or her rights under the Crime Victims Act and give whatever assistance is necessary for the victim to apply for compensation and provide proof of other matters required by our rules. Providers may not charge the victim for these services" WAC 296‑30‑081(2) (
