base level of expenditures for eligible chemical dependency services from local money.
The commissioner shall establish the base level for fiscal year 1988 as the amount of local
money used for eligible services in calendar year 1986. In later years, the base level
must be increased in the same proportion as state appropriations to implement Laws
1986, chapter 394, sections 8 to 20, are increasednew text beginnew text end. The base level must be decreased if the fund balance
from which allocations are made under section 254B.02, subdivision 1, is decreased in
later years. The local match rate for the reserve account is the same rate as applied to the
initial allocation. Reserve account payments must not be included when calculating the
county adjustments made according to subdivision 2. For counties providing medical
assistance or general assistance medical care through managed care plans on January 1,
1996, the base year is fiscal year 1995. For counties beginning provision of managed
care after January 1, 1996, the base year is the most recent fiscal year before enrollment
in managed care begins. For counties providing managed care, the base level will be
increased or decreased in proportion to changes in the fund balance from which allocations
are made under subdivision 2, but will be additionally increased or decreased in proportion
to the change in county adjusted population made in subdivision 1, paragraphs (b) and (c).

account funds in excess of those needed to meet obligations incurred under this section
and sections 254B.06 and 254B.09 shall cancel to the general fund.
