rates per admission for each hospital based on the cost-finding methods and allowable
costs of the Medicare program in effect during the base year. Rates under the general
assistance medical care, medical assistance, and MinnesotaCare programs shall not be

Sec. 4.

Minnesota Statutes 2009 Supplement, section 256.969, subdivision 3a, is
amended to read:


Subd. 3a.

Payments.

(a) Acute care hospital billings under the medical
assistance program must not be submitted until the recipient is discharged. However,
the commissioner shall establish monthly interim payments for inpatient hospitals that
have individual patient lengths of stay over 30 days regardless of diagnostic category.
Except as provided in section 256.9693, medical assistance reimbursement for treatment
of mental illness shall be reimbursed based on diagnostic classifications. Individual
hospital payments established under this section and sections 256.9685, 256.9686, and
256.9695, in addition to third party and recipient liability, for discharges occurring during
the rate year shall not exceed, in aggregate, the charges for the medical assistance covered
inpatient services paid for the same period of time to the hospital. This payment limitation
shall be calculated separately for medical assistance and general assistance medical
care services. The limitation on general assistance medical care shall be effective for
admissions occurring on or after July 1, 1991. Services that have rates established under
subdivision 11 or 12, must be limited separately from other services. After consulting with
the affected hospitals, the commissioner may consider related hospitals one entity and
may merge the payment rates while maintaining separate provider numbers. The operating
and property base rates per admission or per day shall be derived from the best Medicare
and claims data available when rates are established. The commissioner shall determine
the best Medicare and claims data, taking into consideration variables of recency of the
data, audit disposition, settlement status, and the ability to set rates in a timely manner.
The commissioner shall notify hospitals of payment rates by December 1 of the year
preceding the rate year. The rate setting data must reflect the admissions data used to
establish relative values. Base year changes from 1981 to the base year established for the
rate year beginning January 1, 1991, and for subsequent rate years, shall not be limited
to the limits ending June 30, 1987, on the maximum rate of increase under subdivision
1. The commissioner may adjust base year cost, relative value, and case mix index data
to exclude the costs of services that have been discontinued by the October 1 of the year
preceding the rate year or that are paid separately from inpatient services. Inpatient stays
that encompass portions of two or more rate years shall have payments established based
on payment rates in effect at the time of admission unless the date of admission preceded
the rate year in effect by six months or more. In this case, operating payment rates for
services rendered during the rate year in effect and established based on the date of
admission shall be adjusted to the rate year in effect by the hospital cost index.

(b) For fee-for-service admissions occurring on or after July 1, 2002, the total
payment, before third-party liability and spenddown, made to hospitals for inpatient
services is reduced by .5 percent from the current statutory rates.

(c) In addition to the reduction in paragraph (b), the total payment for fee-for-service
admissions occurring on or after July 1, 2003, made to hospitals for inpatient services
before third-party liability and spenddown, is reduced five percent from the current
statutory rates. Mental health services within diagnosis related groups 424 to 432, and
facilities defined under subdivision 16 are excluded from this paragraph.

(d) In addition to the reduction in paragraphs (b) and (c), the total payment for
fee-for-service admissions occurring on or after August 1, 2005, made to hospitals for
inpatient services before third-party liability and spenddown, is reduced 6.0 percent
from the current statutory rates. Mental health services within diagnosis related groups
424 to 432 and facilities defined under subdivision 16 are excluded from this paragraph.
Notwithstanding section 256.9686, subdivision 7, for purposes of this paragraph, medical
assistance does not include general assistance medical care. Payments made to managed
care plans shall be reduced for services provided on or after January 1, 2006, to reflect
this reduction.

(e) In addition to the reductions in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d), the total payment for
fee-for-service admissions occurring on or after July 1, 2008, through June 30, 2009, made
to hospitals for inpatient services before third-party liability and spenddown, is reduced
3.46 percent from the current statutory rates. Mental health services with diagnosis related
groups 424 to 432 and facilities defined under subdivision 16 are excluded from this
paragraph. Payments made to managed care plans shall be reduced for services provided
on or after January 1, 2009, through June 30, 2009, to reflect this reduction.

(f) In addition to the reductions in paragraphs (b), (c), and (d), the total payment for
fee-for-service admissions occurring on or after July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010, made
to hospitals for inpatient services before third-party liability and spenddown, is reduced
1.9 percent from the current statutory rates. Mental health services with diagnosis related
groups 424 to 432 and facilities defined under subdivision 16 are excluded from this
paragraph. Payments made to managed care plans shall be reduced for services provided

Minnesota Statutes 2009 Supplement, section 256B.0625, subdivision 13h,
is amended to read:


Subd. 13h.

Medication therapy management services.

(a) Medical assistance
and general assistance medical care cover medication therapy management services for
a recipient taking four or more prescriptions to treat or prevent two or more chronic
medical conditions, or a recipient with a drug therapy problem that is identified or prior
authorized by the commissioner that has resulted or is likely to result in significant
nondrug program costs. The commissioner may cover medical therapy management
services under MinnesotaCare if the commissioner determines this is cost-effective. For
purposes of this subdivision, "medication therapy management" means the provision
of the following pharmaceutical care services by a licensed pharmacist to optimize the
therapeutic outcomes of the patient's medications:

(1) performing or obtaining necessary assessments of the patient's health status;

(2) formulating a medication treatment plan;

(3) monitoring and evaluating the patient's response to therapy, including safety
and effectiveness;

(4) performing a comprehensive medication review to identify, resolve, and prevent
medication-related problems, including adverse drug events;

(5) documenting the care delivered and communicating essential information to
the patient's other primary care providers;

(6) providing verbal education and training designed to enhance patient
understanding and appropriate use of the patient's medications;

(7) providing information, support services, and resources designed to enhance
patient adherence with the patient's therapeutic regimens; and

(8) coordinating and integrating medication therapy management services within the
broader health care management services being provided to the patient.

Nothing in this subdivision shall be construed to expand or modify the scope of practice of
the pharmacist as defined in section 151.01, subdivision 27.

(b) To be eligible for reimbursement for services under this subdivision, a pharmacist
must meet the following requirements:

(1) have a valid license issued under chapter 151;

(2) have graduated from an accredited college of pharmacy on or after May 1996, or
completed a structured and comprehensive education program approved by the Board of
Pharmacy and the American Council of Pharmaceutical Education for the provision and
documentation of pharmaceutical care management services that has both clinical and
didactic elements;

(3) be practicing in an ambulatory care setting as part of a multidisciplinary team or
have developed a structured patient care process that is offered in a private or semiprivate
patient care area that is separate from the commercial business that also occurs in the
setting, or in home settings, excluding long-term care and group homes, if the service is
ordered by the provider-directed care coordination team; and

(4) make use of an electronic patient record system that meets state standards.

(c) For purposes of reimbursement for medication therapy management services,
the commissioner may enroll individual pharmacists as medical assistance and general
assistance medical care providers. The commissioner may also establish contact
requirements between the pharmacist and recipient, including limiting the number of
reimbursable consultations per recipient.

(d) new text beginIf there are no pharmacists who meet the requirements of paragraph (b) practicing
within a reasonable geographic distance of the patient, a pharmacist who meets the
requirements may provide the services via two-way interactive video. Reimbursement
shall be at the same rates and under the same conditions that would otherwise apply to
the services provided. To qualify for reimbursement under this paragraph, the pharmacist
providing the services must meet the requirements of paragraph (b), and must be located
within an ambulatory care setting approved by the commissioner. The patient must also
be located within an ambulatory care setting approved by the commissioner. Services
provided under this paragraph may not be transmitted into the patient's residence.

new text begin (e) new text endThe commissioner shall establish a pilot project for an intensive medication
therapy management program for patients identified by the commissioner with multiple
chronic conditions and a high number of medications who are at high risk of preventable
hospitalizations, emergency room use, medication complications, and suboptimal
treatment outcomes due to medication-related problems. For purposes of the pilot
project, medication therapy management services may be provided in a patient's home
or community setting, in addition to other authorized settings. The commissioner may
waive existing payment policies and establish special payment rates for the pilot project.
The pilot project must be designed to produce a net savings to the state compared to the
estimated costs that would otherwise be incurred for similar patients without the program.
The pilot project must begin by January 1, 2010, and end June 30, 2012.

Minnesota Statutes 2009 Supplement, section 256B.69, subdivision 23,
is amended to read:


Subd. 23.

Alternative services; elderly and disabled persons.

(a) The
commissioner may implement demonstration projects to create alternative integrated
delivery systems for acute and long-term care services to elderly persons and persons
with disabilities as defined in section 256B.77, subdivision 7a, that provide increased
coordination, improve access to quality services, and mitigate future cost increases.
The commissioner may seek federal authority to combine Medicare and Medicaid
capitation payments for the purpose of such demonstrations and may contract with
Medicare-approved special needs plans to provide Medicaid services. Medicare funds and
services shall be administered according to the terms and conditions of the federal contract
and demonstration provisions. For the purpose of administering medical assistance funds,
demonstrations under this subdivision are subject to subdivisions 1 to 22. The provisions
of Minnesota Rules, parts 9500.1450 to 9500.1464, apply to these demonstrations,
with the exceptions of parts 9500.1452, subpart 2, item B; and 9500.1457, subpart 1,
items B and C, which do not apply to persons enrolling in demonstrations under this
section. An initial open enrollment period may be provided. Persons who disenroll from
demonstrations under this subdivision remain subject to Minnesota Rules, parts 9500.1450
to 9500.1464. When a person is enrolled in a health plan under these demonstrations and
the health plan's participation is subsequently terminated for any reason, the person shall
be provided an opportunity to select a new health plan and shall have the right to change
health plans within the first 60 days of enrollment in the second health plan. Persons
required to participate in health plans under this section who fail to make a choice of
health plan shall not be randomly assigned to health plans under these demonstrations.
Notwithstanding section 256L.12, subdivision 5, and Minnesota Rules, part 9505.5220,
subpart 1, item A, if adopted, for the purpose of demonstrations under this subdivision,
the commissioner may contract with managed care organizations, including counties, to
serve only elderly persons eligible for medical assistance, elderly and disabled persons, or
disabled persons only. For persons with a primary diagnosis of developmental disability,
serious and persistent mental illness, or serious emotional disturbance, the commissioner
must ensure that the county authority has approved the demonstration and contracting
design. Enrollment in these projects for persons with disabilities shall be voluntary. The
commissioner shall not implement any demonstration project under this subdivision for
persons with a primary diagnosis of developmental disabilities, serious and persistent
mental illness, or serious emotional disturbance, without approval of the county board of
the county in which the demonstration is being implemented.

(b) Notwithstanding chapter 245B, sections 252.40 to 252.46, 256B.092, 256B.501
to 256B.5015, and Minnesota Rules, parts 9525.0004 to 9525.0036, 9525.1200 to
9525.1330, 9525.1580, and 9525.1800 to 9525.1930, the commissioner may implement
under this section projects for persons with developmental disabilities. The commissioner
may capitate payments for ICF/MR services, waivered services for developmental
disabilities, including case management services, day training and habilitation and
alternative active treatment services, and other services as approved by the state and by the
federal government. Case management and active treatment must be individualized and
developed in accordance with a person-centered plan. Costs under these projects may not
exceed costs that would have been incurred under fee-for-service. Beginning July 1, 2003,
and until four years after the pilot project implementation date, subcontractor participation
in the long-term care developmental disability pilot is limited to a nonprofit long-term
care system providing ICF/MR services, home and community-based waiver services,
and in-home services to no more than 120 consumers with developmental disabilities in
Carver, Hennepin, and Scott Counties. The commissioner shall report to the legislature
prior to expansion of the developmental disability pilot project. This paragraph expires
four years after the implementation date of the pilot project.

(c) Before implementation of a demonstration project for disabled persons, the
commissioner must provide information to appropriate committees of the house of
representatives and senate and must involve representatives of affected disability groups
in the design of the demonstration projects.

(d) A nursing facility reimbursed under the alternative reimbursement methodology
in section 256B.434 may, in collaboration with a hospital, clinic, or other health care entity
provide services under paragraph (a). The commissioner shall amend the state plan and
seek any federal waivers necessary to implement this paragraph.

(e) The commissioner, in consultation with the commissioners of commerce and
health, may approve and implement programs for all-inclusive care for the elderly (PACE)
according to federal laws and regulations governing that program and state laws or rules
applicable to participating providers. The process for approval of these programs shall
begin only after the commissioner receives grant money in an amount sufficient to cover
the state share of the administrative and actuarial costs to implement the programs during
state fiscal years 2006 and 2007. Grant amounts for this purpose shall be deposited in an
account in the special revenue fund and are appropriated to the commissioner to be used
solely for the purpose of PACE administrative and actuarial costs. A PACE provider is
not required to be licensed or certified as a health plan company as defined in section
62Q.01, subdivision 4. Persons age 55 and older who have been screened by the county
and found to be eligible for services under the elderly waiver or community alternatives
for disabled individuals or who are already eligible for Medicaid but meet level of
care criteria for receipt of waiver services may choose to enroll in the PACE program.
Medicare and Medicaid services will be provided according to this subdivision and
federal Medicare and Medicaid requirements governing PACE providers and programs.
PACE enrollees will receive Medicaid home and community-based services through the
PACE provider as an alternative to services for which they would otherwise be eligible
through home and community-based waiver programs and Medicaid State Plan Services.
The commissioner shall establish Medicaid rates for PACE providers that do not exceed
costs that would have been incurred under fee-for-service or other relevant managed care
programs operated by the state.

(f) The commissioner shall seek federal approval to expand the Minnesota disability
health options (MnDHO) program established under this subdivision in stages, first to
regional population centers outside the seven-county metro area and then to all areas of
the state. Until July 1, 2009, expansion for MnDHO projects that include home and
community-based services is limited to the two projects and service areas in effect on
March 1, 2006. Enrollment in integrated MnDHO programs that include home and
community-based services shall remain voluntary. Costs for home and community-based
services included under MnDHO must not exceed costs that would have been incurred
under the fee-for-service program. Notwithstanding whether expansion occurs under
this paragraph, in determining MnDHO payment rates and risk adjustment methods deleted text beginfor
contract years starting in 2012,
deleted text end the commissioner must consider the methods used to
determine county allocations for home and community-based program participants. If
necessary to reduce MnDHO rates to comply with the provision regarding MnDHO costs

cease. The commissioner may reopen the program provided all applicable conditions of
this section are met.

programs, the commissioner shall involve and consult the state-level stakeholder group

Distribution of funds.

(a) Following the distribution described under
paragraph (b), the commissioner shall annually distribute the available medical education
funds to all qualifying applicants based on a distribution formula that reflects a summation
of two factors:

(1) a public program volume factor, which is determined by the total volume of
public program revenue received by each training site as a percentage of all public
program revenue received by all training sites in the fund pool; and

(2) a supplemental public program volume factor, which is determined by providing
a supplemental payment of 20 percent of each training site's grant to training sites whose
public program revenue accounted for at least 0.98 percent of the total public program
revenue received by all eligible training sites. Grants to training sites whose public
program revenue accounted for less than 0.98 percent of the total public program revenue
received by all eligible training sites shall be reduced by an amount equal to the total
value of the supplemental payment.

Public program revenue for the distribution formula includes revenue from medical
assistance, prepaid medical assistance, general assistance medical care, and prepaid
general assistance medical care. Training sites that receive no public program revenue
are ineligible for funds available under this subdivision. For purposes of determining
training-site level grants to be distributed under paragraph (a), total statewide average
costs per trainee for medical residents is based on audited clinical training costs per trainee
in primary care clinical medical education programs for medical residents. Total statewide
average costs per trainee for dental residents is based on audited clinical training costs
per trainee in clinical medical education programs for dental students. Total statewide
average costs per trainee for pharmacy residents is based on audited clinical training costs
per trainee in clinical medical education programs for pharmacy students.

(b) $5,350,000 of the available medical education funds shall be distributed as
follows:

(1) $1,475,000 to the University of Minnesota Medical Center-Fairview;

(2) $2,075,000 to the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry; and

(3) $1,800,000 to the Academic Health Center.new text begin $150,000 of the funds distributed

(c) Funds distributed shall not be used to displace current funding appropriations
from federal or state sources.

(d) Funds shall be distributed to the sponsoring institutions indicating the amount
to be distributed to each of the sponsor's clinical medical education programs based on
the criteria in this subdivision and in accordance with the commissioner's approval letter.
Each clinical medical education program must distribute funds allocated under paragraph
(a) to the training sites as specified in the commissioner's approval letter. Sponsoring
institutions, which are accredited through an organization recognized by the Department
of Education or the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, may contract directly
with training sites to provide clinical training. To ensure the quality of clinical training,
those accredited sponsoring institutions must:

(1) develop contracts specifying the terms, expectations, and outcomes of the clinical
training conducted at sites; and

(2) take necessary action if the contract requirements are not met. Action may
include the withholding of payments under this section or the removal of students from
the site.

(e) Any funds not distributed in accordance with the commissioner's approval letter
must be returned to the medical education and research fund within 30 days of receiving
notice from the commissioner. The commissioner shall distribute returned funds to the
appropriate training sites in accordance with the commissioner's approval letter.
