Retrospective Rating

Two petitions for rulemaking were received from members of the Retrospective Rating Advisory Committee. Petitioners are requesting revisions to WACs 296-17B-100, 296-17B-720, 296-17B-730, and 296-17B-770. One petition addresses extending requirements currently in WAC for group retro participants to businesses that enroll in individual retro plans. The second addresses retro enrollment requirements for businesses under common majority ownership. This rulemaking is intended to open the dialog with the broader retro community and other stakeholders in order to ensure appropriate public input. Update: The Department has withdrawn the preproposal statement of inquiry because we have identified a need for additional rulemaking, and will file a new preproposal to include the additional topics.680.
