Other pertinent factors.
The determination officer may consider the following other pertinent factors in determining the ability of the estate of the patient and responsible relatives to pay.
(1) The determination officer may consider those factors related to the well-being, education and training, child support obligations set by court order or by administrative finding under chapter 74.20A RCW, and/or rehabilitation of the patient and the patient's immediate family, to whom the patient owes a duty of support. The patient and/or responsible relatives shall show the existence and the necessity for the pertinent factors as defined. Upon such a showing, the determination officer may consider such resources necessary to reasonably provide for such pertinent factors as assets not available to the estate of the patient and responsible relatives.
(2) Consistent with RCW 43.20B.335, the determination officer shall consider a judgment owed by the patient to any victim of an act that would have resulted in criminal conviction of the patient but for a finding of the patient's criminal insanity. A victim shall include an estate's personal representative who has obtained judgment for wrongful death against the criminally insane patient.
