Draft Rule – Provider and Facility Cost Questionnaire

The Washington State Board of Health (Board) and the Washington State Department of Health (Department) are proposing updates to chapter 246-101 WAC, Notifiable Conditions. This chapter of rules includes notification requirements for a number of entities including health care providers, health care facilities, and laboratories. As part of rule making, the Board and Department are required to prepare a cost-benefit analysis that includes the probable cost of complying with requirements deemed “significant” under the Administrative Procedure Act, chapter 34.05 RCW.

You are receiving this questionnaire because DOH needs your help in gathering the probable costs associated with the significant changes in the draft rules. You can help DOH by answering the questions below related to the specified draft rule sections.

If you have any questions or need help completing the questionnaire, please contact Vicki Bouvier at or 360.701.8092.
