Sec. 3.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 3A.02, subdivision 1, is amended to read:


Subdivision 1.

Qualifications.

(a) A former legislator is entitled, upon written
application to the director, to receive a retirement allowance monthly, if the person:

(1) has either served at least six full years, deleted text beginwithout regard to the application of
section 3A.10, subdivision 2,
deleted text end or has served during all or part of four regular sessions as a
member of the legislature, which service need not be continuous;

(2) has attained the normal retirement age;

(3) has retired as a member of the legislature; and

(4) has made all contributions provided for in section 3A.03, has made payments
for past service under subdivision 2, or has made payments in lieu of contributions under
Minnesota Statutes 1992, section 3A.031, before July 1, 1994.

(b) Unless the former legislator has legislative service before January 1, 1979,
the retirement allowance is an amount equal to 2-1/2 percent per year of service of that
member's average monthly salary and adjusted for that person on an actuarial equivalent
basis to reflect the change in the postretirement interest rate actuarial assumption under
section 356.215, subdivision 8, from five percent to six percent. The adjustment must be
calculated by or, alternatively, the adjustment procedure must be specified by, the actuary
retained under section 356.214. The purpose of this adjustment is to ensure that the total
amount of benefits that the actuary predicts an individual member will receive over the
member's lifetime under this paragraph will be the same as the total amount of benefits the
actuary predicts the individual member would receive over the member's lifetime under
the law in effect before enactment of this paragraph. If the former legislator has legislative
service before January 1, 1979, the person's benefit must include the additional benefit
amount in effect on January 1, 1979, and adjusted as otherwise provided in this paragraph.

(c) The retirement allowance accrues following the receipt by the director of a
retirement application on a form prescribed by the director, but not before the normal
retirement age, except as specified in subdivision 1b. The annuity is payable for the
remainder of the former legislator's life, if the former legislator is not serving as a member

(6) provided ongoing training to government entity personnel who respond to
requests under this chapter.

brought an action under this subdivision if the government entity that is the defendant in
the action was also the subject of a written opinion issued under section 13.072 and the
court finds that the opinion is directly related to the cause of action being litigated and that
the government entity did not act in conformity with the opinion.

116.42 ACID DEPOSITION; LEGISLATIVE INTENT.

The legislature recognizes that acid deposition substantially resulting from the
conduct of commercial and industrial operations, both within and without the state, poses
a present and severe danger to the delicate balance of ecological systems within the state,
and that the failure to act promptly and decisively to mitigate or eliminate this danger
will soon result in untold and irreparable damage to the agricultural, water, forest, fish,
and wildlife resources of the state. It is therefore the intent of the legislature in enacting
sections 116.42 to deleted text begin116.45deleted text endnew text begin 116.44new text end to mitigate or eliminate the acid deposition problem by
curbing sources of acid deposition within the state and to support and encourage other
states, the federal government, and the province of Ontario in recognizing the dangers of
acid deposition and taking steps to mitigate or eliminate it within their own jurisdictions.

Minnesota Statutes 2015 Supplement, section 116D.04, subdivision 2a,
is amended to read:


Subd. 2a.

When prepared.

Where there is potential for significant environmental
effects resulting from any major governmental action, the action shall be preceded by a
detailed environmental impact statement prepared by the responsible governmental unit.
The environmental impact statement shall be an analytical rather than an encyclopedic
document which describes the proposed action in detail, analyzes its significant
environmental impacts, discusses appropriate alternatives to the proposed action and
their impacts, and explores methods by which adverse environmental impacts of an
action could be mitigated. The environmental impact statement shall also analyze those
economic, employment, and sociological effects that cannot be avoided should the action
be implemented. To ensure its use in the decision-making process, the environmental
impact statement shall be prepared as early as practical in the formulation of an action.

(a) The board shall by rule establish categories of actions for which environmental
impact statements and for which environmental assessment worksheets shall be prepared
as well as categories of actions for which no environmental review is required under this
section. A mandatory environmental assessment worksheet shall not be required for the
expansion of an ethanol plant, as defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph
(b), or the conversion of an ethanol plant to a biobutanol facility or the expansion of a
biobutanol facility as defined in new text beginMinnesota Statutes 2014, new text endsection 41A.105, subdivision
1a, based on the capacity of the expanded or converted facility to produce alcohol fuel, but
must be required if the ethanol plant or biobutanol facility meets or exceeds thresholds
of other categories of actions for which environmental assessment worksheets must be
prepared. The responsible governmental unit for an ethanol plant or biobutanol facility
project for which an environmental assessment worksheet is prepared shall be the state
agency with the greatest responsibility for supervising or approving the project as a whole.

A mandatory environmental impact statement shall not be required for a facility
or plant located outside the seven-county metropolitan area that produces less than
125,000,000 gallons of ethanol, biobutanol, or cellulosic biofuel annually, or produces less
than 400,000 tons of chemicals annually, if the facility or plant is: an ethanol plant, as
defined in section 41A.09, subdivision 2a, paragraph (b); a biobutanol facility, as defined
in new text beginMinnesota Statutes 2014, new text endsection 41A.105, subdivision 1a, clause (1); or a cellulosic
biofuel facility. A facility or plant that only uses a cellulosic feedstock to produce
chemical products for use by another facility as a feedstock shall not be considered a fuel
conversion facility as used in rules adopted under this chapter.

(b) The responsible governmental unit shall promptly publish notice of the
completion of an environmental assessment worksheet by publishing the notice in at least
one newspaper of general circulation in the geographic area where the project is proposed,
by posting the notice on a Web site that has been designated as the official publication site
for publication of proceedings, public notices, and summaries of a political subdivision in
which the project is proposed, or in any other manner determined by the board and shall
provide copies of the environmental assessment worksheet to the board and its member
agencies. Comments on the need for an environmental impact statement may be submitted
to the responsible governmental unit during a 30-day period following publication of the
notice that an environmental assessment worksheet has been completed. The responsible
governmental unit's decision on the need for an environmental impact statement shall be
based on the environmental assessment worksheet and the comments received during the
comment period, and shall be made within 15 days after the close of the comment period.
The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not more than 15 additional days upon
the request of the responsible governmental unit.

(c) An environmental assessment worksheet shall also be prepared for a proposed
action whenever material evidence accompanying a petition by not less than 100
individuals who reside or own property in the state, submitted before the proposed
project has received final approval by the appropriate governmental units, demonstrates
that, because of the nature or location of a proposed action, there may be potential for
significant environmental effects. Petitions requesting the preparation of an environmental
assessment worksheet shall be submitted to the board. The chair of the board shall
determine the appropriate responsible governmental unit and forward the petition to it.
A decision on the need for an environmental assessment worksheet shall be made by
the responsible governmental unit within 15 days after the petition is received by the
responsible governmental unit. The board's chair may extend the 15-day period by not
more than 15 additional days upon request of the responsible governmental unit.

(d) Except in an environmentally sensitive location where Minnesota Rules, part
4410.4300, subpart 29, item B, applies, the proposed action is exempt from environmental
review under this chapter and rules of the board, if:

(1) the proposed action is:

(i) an animal feedlot facility with a capacity of less than 1,000 animal units; or

(ii) an expansion of an existing animal feedlot facility with a total cumulative
capacity of less than 1,000 animal units;

(2) the application for the animal feedlot facility includes a written commitment by
the proposer to design, construct, and operate the facility in full compliance with Pollution
Control Agency feedlot rules; and

(3) the county board holds a public meeting for citizen input at least ten business
days prior to the Pollution Control Agency or county issuing a feedlot permit for the
animal feedlot facility unless another public meeting for citizen input has been held with
regard to the feedlot facility to be permitted. The exemption in this paragraph is in
addition to other exemptions provided under other law and rules of the board.

(e) The board may, prior to final approval of a proposed project, require preparation
of an environmental assessment worksheet by a responsible governmental unit selected
by the board for any action where environmental review under this section has not been
specifically provided for by rule or otherwise initiated.

(f) An early and open process shall be utilized to limit the scope of the environmental
impact statement to a discussion of those impacts, which, because of the nature or location
of the project, have the potential for significant environmental effects. The same process
shall be utilized to determine the form, content and level of detail of the statement as well
as the alternatives which are appropriate for consideration in the statement. In addition,
the permits which will be required for the proposed action shall be identified during the
scoping process. Further, the process shall identify those permits for which information
will be developed concurrently with the environmental impact statement. The board
shall provide in its rules for the expeditious completion of the scoping process. The
determinations reached in the process shall be incorporated into the order requiring the
preparation of an environmental impact statement.

(g) The responsible governmental unit shall, to the extent practicable, avoid
duplication and ensure coordination between state and federal environmental review
and between environmental review and environmental permitting. Whenever practical,
information needed by a governmental unit for making final decisions on permits
or other actions required for a proposed project shall be developed in conjunction
with the preparation of an environmental impact statement. When an environmental
impact statement is prepared for a project requiring multiple permits for which two or
more agencies' decision processes include either mandatory or discretionary hearings
before a hearing officer prior to the agencies' decision on the permit, the agencies
may, notwithstanding any law or rule to the contrary, conduct the hearings in a single
consolidated hearing process if requested by the proposer. All agencies having jurisdiction
over a permit that is included in the consolidated hearing shall participate. The responsible
governmental unit shall establish appropriate procedures for the consolidated hearing
process, including procedures to ensure that the consolidated hearing process is consistent
with the applicable requirements for each permit regarding the rights and duties of parties to
the hearing, and shall utilize the earliest applicable hearing procedure to initiate the hearing.

(h) An environmental impact statement shall be prepared and its adequacy
determined within 280 days after notice of its preparation unless the time is extended by
consent of the parties or by the governor for good cause. The responsible governmental
unit shall determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement, unless within 60
days after notice is published that an environmental impact statement will be prepared,
the board chooses to determine the adequacy of an environmental impact statement. If an
environmental impact statement is found to be inadequate, the responsible governmental
unit shall have 60 days to prepare an adequate environmental impact statement.

(i) The proposer of a specific action may include in the information submitted to the
responsible governmental unit a preliminary draft environmental impact statement under
this section on that action for review, modification, and determination of completeness and
adequacy by the responsible governmental unit. A preliminary draft environmental impact
statement prepared by the project proposer and submitted to the responsible governmental
unit shall identify or include as an appendix all studies and other sources of information
used to substantiate the analysis contained in the preliminary draft environmental impact
statement. The responsible governmental unit shall require additional studies, if needed,
and obtain from the project proposer all additional studies and information necessary for
the responsible governmental unit to perform its responsibility to review, modify, and
determine the completeness and adequacy of the environmental impact statement.

Nonresident tuition rate; other costs.

(a) For fiscal year 2015 and
later, when a school district provides special instruction and services for a pupil with
a disability as defined in section 125A.02 outside the district of residence, excluding
a pupil for whom an adjustment to special education aid is calculated according to
section 127A.47, subdivision 7, paragraphs (b) to (d), special education aid paid to the
resident district must be reduced by an amount equal to (1) the actual cost of providing
special instruction and services to the pupil, including a proportionate amount for special
transportation and unreimbursed building lease and debt service costs for facilities used
primarily for special education, plus (2) the amount of general education revenue and
referendum equalization aid attributable to that pupil, calculated using the resident district's
average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil
unit excluding basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and secondary sparsity
revenue, minus (3) the amount of special education aid for children with a disability
under section 125A.76 received on behalf of that child, minus (4) if the pupil receives
special instruction and services outside the regular classroom for more than 60 percent
of the school day, the amount of general education revenue and referendum equalization
aid, excluding portions attributable to district and school administration, district support
services, operations and maintenance, capital expenditures, and pupil transportation,
attributable to that pupil for the portion of time the pupil receives special instruction
and services outside of the regular classroom, calculated using the resident district's
average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid per adjusted pupil unit
excluding basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and secondary sparsity revenue
and the serving district's basic skills revenue, elementary sparsity revenue and secondary
sparsity revenue per adjusted pupil unit. Notwithstanding clauses (1) and (4), for pupils
served by a cooperative unit without a fiscal agent school district, the general education
revenue and referendum equalization aid attributable to a pupil must be calculated using
the resident district's average general education revenue and referendum equalization aid
excluding compensatory revenue, elementary sparsity revenue, and secondary sparsity
revenue. Special education aid paid to the district or cooperative providing special
instruction and services for the pupil must be increased by the amount of the reduction in
the aid paid to the resident district. Amounts paid to cooperatives under this subdivision
and section 127A.47, subdivision 7, shall be recognized and reported as revenues and
expenditures on the resident school district's books of account under sections 123B.75

adjustment, the remaining adjustment shall be made to other state aid due to the district.

(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), when a charter school receiving special education

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 125A.51, is amended to read:


125A.51 PLACEMENT OF CHILDREN WITHOUT DISABILITIES;
EDUCATION AND TRANSPORTATION.

The responsibility for providing instruction and transportation for a pupil without a
disability who has a short-term or temporary physical or emotional illness or disability, as
determined by the standards of the commissioner, and who is temporarily placed for care
and treatment for that illness or disability, must be determined as provided in this section.

(a) The school district of residence of the pupil is the district in which the pupil's
parent or guardian resides. If there is a dispute between school districts regarding
residency, the district of residence is the district designated by the commissioner.

(b) When parental rights have been terminated by court order, the legal residence
of a child placed in a residential or foster facility for care and treatment is the district in
which the child resides.

(c) Before the placement of a pupil for care and treatment, the district of residence
must be notified and provided an opportunity to participate in the placement decision.
When an immediate emergency placement is necessary and time does not permit
resident district participation in the placement decision, the district in which the pupil is
temporarily placed, if different from the district of residence, must notify the district
of residence of the emergency placement within 15 days of the placement. When a
nonresident district makes an emergency placement without first consulting with the
resident district, the resident district has up to five business days after receiving notice
of the emergency placement to request an opportunity to participate in the placement
decision, which the placing district must then provide.

(d) When a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed for care and treatment
in a day program and the pupil continues to live within the district of residence during
the care and treatment, the district of residence must provide instruction and necessary
transportation to and from the care and treatment program for the pupil. The resident
district may establish reasonable restrictions on transportation, except if a Minnesota court
or agency orders the child placed at a day care and treatment program and the resident
district receives a copy of the order, then the resident district must provide transportation
to and from the program unless the court or agency orders otherwise. Transportation shall
only be provided by the resident district during regular operating hours of the resident
district. The resident district may provide the instruction at a school within the district of
residence, at the pupil's residence, or in the case of a placement outside of the resident
district, in the district in which the day treatment program is located by paying tuition to
that district. The district of placement may contract with a facility to provide instruction
by teachers licensed by the state Board of Teaching.

(e) When a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed in a residential program
for care and treatment, the district in which the pupil is placed must provide instruction
for the pupil and necessary transportation while the pupil is receiving instruction, and in
the case of a placement outside of the district of residence, the nonresident district must
bill the district of residence for the actual cost of providing the instruction for the regular
school year and for summer school, excluding transportation costs.

(f) Notwithstanding paragraph (e), if the pupil is homeless and placed in a public or
private homeless shelter, then the district that enrolls the pupil under section deleted text begin127A.47,
subdivision 2
deleted text endnew text begin 120A.20, subdivision 2, paragraph (b)new text end, shall provide the transportation, unless
the district that enrolls the pupil and the district in which the pupil is temporarily placed
agree that the district in which the pupil is temporarily placed shall provide transportation.
When a pupil without a disability is temporarily placed in a residential program outside
the district of residence, the administrator of the court placing the pupil must send timely
written notice of the placement to the district of residence. The district of placement may
contract with a residential facility to provide instruction by teachers licensed by the state
Board of Teaching. For purposes of this section, the state correctional facilities operated
on a fee-for-service basis are considered to be residential programs for care and treatment.

(g) The district of residence must include the pupil in its residence count of pupil
units and pay tuition as provided in section 123A.488 to the district providing the
instruction. Transportation costs must be paid by the district providing the transportation
and the state must pay transportation aid to that district. For purposes of computing state
transportation aid, pupils governed by this subdivision must be included in the disabled
transportation category if the pupils cannot be transported on a regular school bus route
without special accommodations.

Sec. 69.

Minnesota Statutes 2015 Supplement, section 151.37, subdivision 2, is
amended to read:


Subd. 2.

Prescribing and filing.

(a) A licensed practitioner in the course of
professional practice only, may prescribe, administer, and dispense a legend drug, and
may cause the same to be administered by a nurse, a physician assistant, or medical
student or resident under the practitioner's direction and supervision, and may cause a
person who is an appropriately certified, registered, or licensed health care professional
to prescribe, dispense, and administer the same within the expressed legal scope of the
person's practice as defined in Minnesota Statutes. A licensed practitioner may prescribe a
legend drug, without reference to a specific patient, by directing a licensed dietitian or
licensed nutritionist, pursuant to section 148.634; a nurse, pursuant to section 148.235,
subdivisions 8 and 9; physician assistant; medical student or resident; or pharmacist
according to section 151.01, subdivision 27, to adhere to a particular practice guideline or
protocol when treating patients whose condition falls within such guideline or protocol,
and when such guideline or protocol specifies the circumstances under which the legend
drug is to be prescribed and administered. An individual who verbally, electronically, or
otherwise transmits a written, oral, or electronic order, as an agent of a prescriber, shall
not be deemed to have prescribed the legend drug. This paragraph applies to a physician
assistant only if the physician assistant meets the requirements of section 147A.18.

(b) The commissioner of health, if a licensed practitioner, or a person designated
by the commissioner who is a licensed practitioner, may prescribe a legend drug to an
individual or by protocol for mass dispensing purposes where the commissioner finds that
the conditions triggering section 144.4197 or 144.4198, subdivision 2, paragraph (b), exist.
The commissioner, if a licensed practitioner, or a designated licensed practitioner, may
prescribe, dispense, or administer a legend drug or other substance listed in subdivision 10
to control tuberculosis and other communicable diseases. The commissioner may modify
state drug labeling requirements, and medical screening criteria and documentation, where
time is critical and limited labeling and screening are most likely to ensure legend drugs
reach the maximum number of persons in a timely fashion so as to reduce morbidity
and mortality.

(c) A licensed practitioner that dispenses for profit a legend drug that is to be
administered orally, is ordinarily dispensed by a pharmacist, and is not a vaccine, must
file with the practitioner's licensing board a statement indicating that the practitioner
dispenses legend drugs for profit, the general circumstances under which the practitioner
dispenses for profit, and the types of legend drugs generally dispensed. It is unlawful to
dispense legend drugs for profit after July 31, 1990, unless the statement has been filed
with the appropriate licensing board. For purposes of this paragraph, "profit" means (1)
any amount received by the practitioner in excess of the acquisition cost of a legend drug
for legend drugs that are purchased in prepackaged form, or (2) any amount received
by the practitioner in excess of the acquisition cost of a legend drug plus the cost of
making the drug available if the legend drug requires compounding, packaging, or other
treatment. The statement filed under this paragraph is public data under section 13.03.
This paragraph does not apply to a licensed doctor of veterinary medicine or a registered
pharmacist. Any person other than a licensed practitioner with the authority to prescribe,
dispense, and administer a legend drug under paragraph (a) shall not dispense for profit.
To dispense for profit does not include dispensing by a community health clinic when the
profit from dispensing is used to meet operating expenses.

(d) A prescription drug order for the following drugs is not valid, unless it can be
established that the prescription drug order was based on a documented patient evaluation,
including an examination, adequate to establish a diagnosis and identify underlying
conditions and contraindications to treatment:

(1) controlled substance drugs listed in section 152.02, subdivisions 3 to 5;

(2) drugs defined by the Board of Pharmacy as controlled substances under section
152.02, subdivisions 7, 8, and 12;

(3) muscle relaxants;

(4) centrally acting analgesics with opioid activity;

(5) drugs containing butalbital; or

(6) phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors when used to treat erectile dysfunction.

(e) For the purposes of paragraph (d), the requirement for an examination shall be
met if an in-person examination has been completed in any of the following circumstances:

(1) the prescribing practitioner examines the patient at the time the prescription
or drug order is issued;

(2) the prescribing practitioner has performed a prior examination of the patient;

(3) another prescribing practitioner practicing within the same group or clinic as the
prescribing practitioner has examined the patient;

(4) a consulting practitioner to whom the prescribing practitioner has referred the
patient has examined the patient; or

(5) the referring practitioner has performed an examination in the case of a
consultant practitioner issuing a prescription or drug order when providing services by
means of telemedicine.

(f) Nothing in paragraph (d) or (e) prohibits a licensed practitioner from prescribing
a drug through the use of a guideline or protocol pursuant to paragraph (a).

(g) Nothing in this chapter prohibits a licensed practitioner from issuing a
prescription or dispensing a legend drug in accordance with the Expedited Partner Therapy
in the Management of Sexually Transmitted Diseases guidance document issued by the
United States Centers for Disease Control.

(h) Nothing in paragraph (d) or (e) limits prescription, administration, or dispensing
of legend drugs through a public health clinic or other distribution mechanism approved
by the commissioner of health or a community health board in order to prevent, mitigate,
or treat a pandemic illness, infectious disease outbreak, or intentional or accidental release
of a biological, chemical, or radiological agent.

(i) No pharmacist employed by, under contract to, or working for a pharmacy
licensed under section 151.19, subdivision 1, may dispense a legend drug based on a
prescription that the pharmacist knows, or would reasonably be expected to know, is not
valid under paragraph (d).

(j) No pharmacist employed by, under contract to, or working for a pharmacy
licensed under section 151.19, subdivision deleted text begin2deleted text endnew text begin 1new text end,new text begin and located outside the statenew text end may dispense
a legend drug to a resident of this state based on a prescription that the pharmacist knows,
or would reasonably be expected to know, is not valid under paragraph (d).

(k) Nothing in this chapter prohibits the commissioner of health, if a licensed
practitioner, or, if not a licensed practitioner, a designee of the commissioner who is
a licensed practitioner, from prescribing legend drugs for field-delivered therapy in the
treatment of a communicable disease according to the Centers For Disease Control and
Prevention Partner Services Guidelines.

Legislative intent; rules; loss of more than one body part.

(a) For the
purpose of establishing a disability schedule, the legislature declares its intent that the
commissioner establish a disability schedule which shall be determined by sound actuarial
evaluation and shall be based on the benefit level which exists on January 1, 1983.

(b) The commissioner shall by rulemaking adopt procedures setting forth rules
for the evaluation and rating of functional disability and the schedule for permanent
partial disability and to determine the percentage of loss of function of a part of the body
based on the body as a whole, including internal organsdeleted text begin, described in section 176.101,
subdivision 3
,
deleted text end and any other body part deleted text beginnot listed in section 176.101, subdivision 3,deleted text end which
the commissioner deems appropriate.

(c) The rules shall promote objectivity and consistency in the evaluation of
permanent functional impairment due to personal injury and in the assignment of a
numerical rating to the functional impairment.

(d) Prior to adoption of rules the commissioner shall conduct an analysis of the
current permanent partial disability schedule for the purpose of determining the number
and distribution of permanent partial disabilities and the average compensation for various
permanent partial disabilities. The commissioner shall consider setting the compensation
under the proposed schedule for the most serious conditions higher in comparison to the
current schedule and shall consider decreasing awards for minor conditions in comparison
to the current schedule.

(e) The commissioner may consider, among other factors, and shall not be limited
to the following factors in developing rules for the evaluation and rating of functional
disability and the schedule for permanent partial disability benefits:

(1) the workability and simplicity of the procedures with respect to the evaluation
of functional disability;

(2) the consistency of the procedures with accepted medical standards;

(3) rules, guidelines, and schedules that exist in other states that are related to the
evaluation of permanent partial disability or to a schedule of benefits for functional
disability provided that the commissioner is not bound by the degree of disability in
these sources but shall adjust the relative degree of disability to conform to the expressed
intent of this section;

(4) rules, guidelines, and schedules that have been developed by associations of
health care providers or organizations provided that the commissioner is not bound by the
degree of disability in these sources but shall adjust the relative degree of disability to
conform to the expressed intent of this section;

(5) the effect the rules may have on reducing litigation;

(6) the treatment of preexisting disabilities with respect to the evaluation of
permanent functional disability provided that any preexisting disabilities must be
objectively determined by medical evidence; and

(7) symptomatology and loss of function and use of the injured member.

The factors in clauses (1) to (7) shall not be used in any individual or specific
workers' compensation claim under this chapter but shall be used only in the adoption
of rules pursuant to this section.

Nothing listed in clauses (1) to (7) shall be used to dispute or challenge a disability
rating given to a part of the body so long as the whole schedule conforms with the
expressed intent of this section.

(f) If an employee suffers a permanent functional disability of more than one body
part due to a personal injury incurred in a single occurrence, the percent of the whole body
which is permanently partially disabled shall be determined by the following formula so
as to ensure that the percentage for all functional disability combined does not exceed the
total for the whole body:

A + B (1 - A)

where: A is the greater percentage whole body loss of the first body part; and B is
the lesser percentage whole body loss otherwise payable for the second body part. A + B
(1-A) is equivalent to A + B - AB.

For permanent partial disabilities to three body parts due to a single occurrence or as
the result of an occupational disease, the above formula shall be applied, providing that
A equals the result obtained from application of the formula to the first two body parts
and B equals the percentage for the third body part. For permanent partial disability to
four or more body parts incurred as described above, A equals the result obtained from
the prior application of the formula, and B equals the percentage for the fourth body
part or more in arithmetic progressions.

Specific powers.

Subject to the provisions of section 241.021, subdivision
2
, the commissioner of human services shall carry out the specific duties in paragraphs (a)
through (bb):

(a) Administer and supervise all forms of public assistance provided for by state law
and other welfare activities or services as are vested in the commissioner. Administration
and supervision of human services activities or services includes, but is not limited to,
assuring timely and accurate distribution of benefits, completeness of service, and quality
program management. In addition to administering and supervising human services
activities vested by law in the department, the commissioner shall have the authority to:

(1) require county agency participation in training and technical assistance programs
to promote compliance with statutes, rules, federal laws, regulations, and policies
governing human services;

(2) monitor, on an ongoing basis, the performance of county agencies in the
operation and administration of human services, enforce compliance with statutes, rules,
federal laws, regulations, and policies governing welfare services and promote excellence
of administration and program operation;

(3) develop a quality control program or other monitoring program to review county
performance and accuracy of benefit determinations;

(4) require county agencies to make an adjustment to the public assistance benefits
issued to any individual consistent with federal law and regulation and state law and rule
and to issue or recover benefits as appropriate;

(5) delay or deny payment of all or part of the state and federal share of benefits and
administrative reimbursement according to the procedures set forth in section 256.017;

(6) make contracts with and grants to public and private agencies and organizations,
both profit and nonprofit, and individuals, using appropriated funds; and

(7) enter into contractual agreements with federally recognized Indian tribes with
a reservation in Minnesota to the extent necessary for the tribe to operate a federally
approved family assistance program or any other program under the supervision of the
commissioner. The commissioner shall consult with the affected county or counties in
the contractual agreement negotiations, if the county or counties wish to be included,
in order to avoid the duplication of county and tribal assistance program services. The
commissioner may establish necessary accounts for the purposes of receiving and
disbursing funds as necessary for the operation of the programs.

(b) Inform county agencies, on a timely basis, of changes in statute, rule, federal law,
regulation, and policy necessary to county agency administration of the programs.

(c) Administer and supervise all child welfare activities; promote the enforcement of
laws protecting disabled, dependent, neglected and delinquent children, and children born
to mothers who were not married to the children's fathers at the times of the conception
nor at the births of the children; license and supervise child-caring and child-placing
agencies and institutions; supervise the care of children in boarding and foster homes or
in private institutions; and generally perform all functions relating to the field of child
welfare now vested in the State Board of Control.

(d) Administer and supervise all noninstitutional service to persons with disabilities,
including persons who have vision impairments, and persons who are deaf, deafblind, and
hard-of-hearing or with other disabilities. The commissioner may provide and contract for
the care and treatment of qualified indigent children in facilities other than those located and
available at state hospitals when it is not feasible to provide the service in state hospitals.

(e) Assist and actively cooperate with other departments, agencies and institutions,
local, state, and federal, by performing services in conformity with the purposes of Laws
1939, chapter 431.

(f) Act as the agent of and cooperate with the federal government in matters of
mutual concern relative to and in conformity with the provisions of Laws 1939, chapter
431, including the administration of any federal funds granted to the state to aid in the
performance of any functions of the commissioner as specified in Laws 1939, chapter 431,
and including the promulgation of rules making uniformly available medical care benefits
to all recipients of public assistance, at such times as the federal government increases its
participation in assistance expenditures for medical care to recipients of public assistance,
the cost thereof to be borne in the same proportion as are grants of aid to said recipients.

(g) Establish and maintain any administrative units reasonably necessary for the
performance of administrative functions common to all divisions of the department.

(h) Act as designated guardian of both the estate and the person of all the wards of
the state of Minnesota, whether by operation of law or by an order of court, without any
further act or proceeding whatever, except as to persons committed as developmentally
disabled. For children under the guardianship of the commissioner or a tribe in Minnesota
recognized by the Secretary of the Interior whose interests would be best served by
adoptive placement, the commissioner may contract with a licensed child-placing agency
or a Minnesota tribal social services agency to provide adoption services. A contract
with a licensed child-placing agency must be designed to supplement existing county
efforts and may not replace existing county programs or tribal social services, unless the
replacement is agreed to by the county board and the appropriate exclusive bargaining
representative, tribal governing body, or the commissioner has evidence that child
placements of the county continue to be substantially below that of other counties. Funds
encumbered and obligated under an agreement for a specific child shall remain available
until the terms of the agreement are fulfilled or the agreement is terminated.

(i) Act as coordinating referral and informational center on requests for service for
newly arrived immigrants coming to Minnesota.

(j) The specific enumeration of powers and duties as hereinabove set forth shall in no
way be construed to be a limitation upon the general transfer of powers herein contained.

(k) Establish county, regional, or statewide schedules of maximum fees and charges
which may be paid by county agencies for medical, dental, surgical, hospital, nursing and
nursing home care and medicine and medical supplies under all programs of medical
care provided by the state and for congregate living care under the income maintenance
programs.

(l) Have the authority to conduct and administer experimental projects to test methods
and procedures of administering assistance and services to recipients or potential recipients
of public welfare. To carry out such experimental projects, it is further provided that the
commissioner of human services is authorized to waive the enforcement of existing specific
statutory program requirements, rules, and standards in one or more counties. The order
establishing the waiver shall provide alternative methods and procedures of administration,
shall not be in conflict with the basic purposes, coverage, or benefits provided by law, and
in no event shall the duration of a project exceed four years. It is further provided that no
order establishing an experimental project as authorized by the provisions of this section
shall become effective until the following conditions have been met:

(1) the secretary of health and human services of the United States has agreed, for
the same project, to waive state plan requirements relative to statewide uniformity; and

(2) a comprehensive plan, including estimated project costs, shall be approved by
the Legislative Advisory Commission and filed with the commissioner of administration.

(m) According to federal requirements, establish procedures to be followed by
local welfare boards in creating citizen advisory committees, including procedures for
selection of committee members.

(n) Allocate federal fiscal disallowances or sanctions which are based on quality
control error rates for the aid to families with dependent children program formerly
codified in sections 256.72 to 256.87, medical assistance, or food stamp program in the
following manner:

(1) one-half of the total amount of the disallowance shall be borne by the county
boards responsible for administering the programs. For the medical assistance and the
AFDC program formerly codified in sections 256.72 to 256.87, disallowances shall be
shared by each county board in the same proportion as that county's expenditures for the
sanctioned program are to the total of all counties' expenditures for the AFDC program
formerly codified in sections 256.72 to 256.87, and medical assistance programs. For the
food stamp program, sanctions shall be shared by each county board, with 50 percent of
the sanction being distributed to each county in the same proportion as that county's
administrative costs for food stamps are to the total of all food stamp administrative costs
for all counties, and 50 percent of the sanctions being distributed to each county in the
same proportion as that county's value of food stamp benefits issued are to the total of
all benefits issued for all counties. Each county shall pay its share of the disallowance
to the state of Minnesota. When a county fails to pay the amount due hereunder, the
commissioner may deduct the amount from reimbursement otherwise due the county, or
the attorney general, upon the request of the commissioner, may institute civil action
to recover the amount due; and

(2) notwithstanding the provisions of clause (1), if the disallowance results from
knowing noncompliance by one or more counties with a specific program instruction, and
that knowing noncompliance is a matter of official county board record, the commissioner
may require payment or recover from the county or counties, in the manner prescribed in
clause (1), an amount equal to the portion of the total disallowance which resulted from the
noncompliance, and may distribute the balance of the disallowance according to clause (1).

(o) Develop and implement special projects that maximize reimbursements and
result in the recovery of money to the state. For the purpose of recovering state money,
the commissioner may enter into contracts with third parties. Any recoveries that result
from projects or contracts entered into under this paragraph shall be deposited in the
state treasury and credited to a special account until the balance in the account reaches
$1,000,000. When the balance in the account exceeds $1,000,000, the excess shall be
transferred and credited to the general fund. All money in the account is appropriated to
the commissioner for the purposes of this paragraph.

deleted text begin (p) Have the authority to make direct payments to facilities providing shelter
to women and their children according to section 256D.05, subdivision 3. Upon
the written request of a shelter facility that has been denied payments under section
256D.05, subdivision 3, the commissioner shall review all relevant evidence and make
a determination within 30 days of the request for review regarding issuance of direct
payments to the shelter facility. Failure to act within 30 days shall be considered a
determination not to issue direct payments.
deleted text end

(q) Have the authority to establish and enforce the following county reporting
requirements:

(1) the commissioner shall establish fiscal and statistical reporting requirements
necessary to account for the expenditure of funds allocated to counties for human
services programs. When establishing financial and statistical reporting requirements, the
commissioner shall evaluate all reports, in consultation with the counties, to determine if
the reports can be simplified or the number of reports can be reduced;

(2) the county board shall submit monthly or quarterly reports to the department
as required by the commissioner. Monthly reports are due no later than 15 working days
after the end of the month. Quarterly reports are due no later than 30 calendar days after
the end of the quarter, unless the commissioner determines that the deadline must be
shortened to 20 calendar days to avoid jeopardizing compliance with federal deadlines
or risking a loss of federal funding. Only reports that are complete, legible, and in the
required format shall be accepted by the commissioner;

(3) if the required reports are not received by the deadlines established in clause (2),
the commissioner may delay payments and withhold funds from the county board until
the next reporting period. When the report is needed to account for the use of federal
funds and the late report results in a reduction in federal funding, the commissioner shall
withhold from the county boards with late reports an amount equal to the reduction in
federal funding until full federal funding is received;

(4) a county board that submits reports that are late, illegible, incomplete, or not
in the required format for two out of three consecutive reporting periods is considered
noncompliant. When a county board is found to be noncompliant, the commissioner
shall notify the county board of the reason the county board is considered noncompliant
and request that the county board develop a corrective action plan stating how the
county board plans to correct the problem. The corrective action plan must be submitted
to the commissioner within 45 days after the date the county board received notice
of noncompliance;

(5) the final deadline for fiscal reports or amendments to fiscal reports is one year
after the date the report was originally due. If the commissioner does not receive a report
by the final deadline, the county board forfeits the funding associated with the report for
that reporting period and the county board must repay any funds associated with the
report received for that reporting period;

(6) the commissioner may not delay payments, withhold funds, or require repayment
under clause (3) or (5) if the county demonstrates that the commissioner failed to
provide appropriate forms, guidelines, and technical assistance to enable the county to
comply with the requirements. If the county board disagrees with an action taken by the
commissioner under clause (3) or (5), the county board may appeal the action according
to sections 14.57 to 14.69; and

(7) counties subject to withholding of funds under clause (3) or forfeiture or
repayment of funds under clause (5) shall not reduce or withhold benefits or services to
clients to cover costs incurred due to actions taken by the commissioner under clause
(3) or (5).

(r) Allocate federal fiscal disallowances or sanctions for audit exceptions when
federal fiscal disallowances or sanctions are based on a statewide random sample in direct
proportion to each county's claim for that period.

(s) Be responsible for ensuring the detection, prevention, investigation, and
resolution of fraudulent activities or behavior by applicants, recipients, and other
participants in the human services programs administered by the department.

(t) Require county agencies to identify overpayments, establish claims, and utilize
all available and cost-beneficial methodologies to collect and recover these overpayments
in the human services programs administered by the department.

(u) Have the authority to administer the federal drug rebate program for drugs
purchased under the medical assistance program as allowed by section 1927 of title XIX
of the Social Security Act and according to the terms and conditions of section 1927.
Rebates shall be collected for all drugs that have been dispensed or administered in an
outpatient setting and that are from manufacturers who have signed a rebate agreement
with the United States Department of Health and Human Services.

(v) Have the authority to administer a supplemental drug rebate program for drugs
purchased under the medical assistance program. The commissioner may enter into
supplemental rebate contracts with pharmaceutical manufacturers and may require prior
authorization for drugs that are from manufacturers that have not signed a supplemental
rebate contract. Prior authorization of drugs shall be subject to the provisions of section
256B.0625, subdivision 13.

(w) Operate the department's communication systems account established in Laws
1993, First Special Session chapter 1, article 1, section 2, subdivision 2, to manage shared
communication costs necessary for the operation of the programs the commissioner
supervises. A communications account may also be established for each regional
treatment center which operates communications systems. Each account must be used
to manage shared communication costs necessary for the operations of the programs the
commissioner supervises. The commissioner may distribute the costs of operating and
maintaining communication systems to participants in a manner that reflects actual usage.
Costs may include acquisition, licensing, insurance, maintenance, repair, staff time and
other costs as determined by the commissioner. Nonprofit organizations and state, county,
and local government agencies involved in the operation of programs the commissioner
supervises may participate in the use of the department's communications technology and
share in the cost of operation. The commissioner may accept on behalf of the state any
gift, bequest, devise or personal property of any kind, or money tendered to the state for
any lawful purpose pertaining to the communication activities of the department. Any
money received for this purpose must be deposited in the department's communication
systems accounts. Money collected by the commissioner for the use of communication
systems must be deposited in the state communication systems account and is appropriated
to the commissioner for purposes of this section.

(x) Receive any federal matching money that is made available through the medical

the survey is appropriated to the commissioner for this purpose. The commissioner may
expend the federal money received for the consumer satisfaction survey in either year of
the biennium.

(y) Designate community information and referral call centers and incorporate
cost reimbursement claims from the designated community information and referral
call centers into the federal cost reimbursement claiming processes of the department
according to federal law, rule, and regulations. Existing information and referral centers
provided by Greater Twin Cities United Way or existing call centers for which Greater
Twin Cities United Way has legal authority to represent, shall be included in these
designations upon review by the commissioner and assurance that these services are
accredited and in compliance with national standards. Any reimbursement is appropriated
to the commissioner and all designated information and referral centers shall receive
payments according to normal department schedules established by the commissioner
upon final approval of allocation methodologies from the United States Department of
Health and Human Services Division of Cost Allocation or other appropriate authorities.

(z) Develop recommended standards for foster care homes that address the
components of specialized therapeutic services to be provided by foster care homes with
those services.

(aa) Authorize the method of payment to or from the department as part of the
human services programs administered by the department. This authorization includes the
receipt or disbursement of funds held by the department in a fiduciary capacity as part of
the human services programs administered by the department.

(bb) Designate the agencies that operate the Senior LinkAge Line under section
256.975, subdivision 7, and the Disability Linkage Line under subdivision 24 as the
state of Minnesota Aging and Disability Resource Center under United States Code, title
42, section 3001, the Older Americans Act Amendments of 2006, and incorporate cost
reimbursement claims from the designated centers into the federal cost reimbursement
claiming processes of the department according to federal law, rule, and regulations. Any
reimbursement must be appropriated to the commissioner and treated consistent with
section 256.011. All Aging and Disability Resource Center designated agencies shall
receive payments of grant funding that supports the activity and generates the federal
financial participation according to Board on Aging administrative granting mechanisms.

Minnesota Statutes 2014, section 256.045, subdivision 3b, is amended to read:


Subd. 3b.

Standard of evidence for maltreatment and disqualification hearings.

(a) The state human services judge shall determine that maltreatment has occurred if a
preponderance of evidence exists to support the final disposition under sections 626.556
and 626.557. For purposes of hearings regarding disqualification, the state human
services judge shall affirm the proposed disqualification in an appeal under subdivision 3,
paragraph (a), clause (9), if a preponderance of the evidence shows the individual has:

(1) committed maltreatment under section 626.556 or 626.557, which is serious or
recurring;

(2) committed an act or acts meeting the definition of any of the crimes listed in
section 245C.15, subdivisions 1 to 4; or

(3) failed to make required reports under section 626.556 or 626.557, for incidents
in which the final disposition under section 626.556 or 626.557 was substantiated
maltreatment that was serious or recurring.

(b) If the disqualification is affirmed, the state human services judge shall determine
whether the individual poses a risk of harm in accordance with the requirements of
section 245C.22, and whether the disqualification should be set aside or not set aside.
In determining whether the disqualification should be set aside, the human services
judge shall consider all of the characteristics that cause the individual to be disqualified,
including those characteristics that were not subject to review under paragraph (a), in
order to determine whether the individual poses a risk of harm. A decision to set aside
a disqualification that is the subject of the hearing constitutes a determination that the
individual does not pose a risk of harm and that the individual may provide direct contact
services in the individual program specified in the set aside.

(c) If a disqualification is based solely on a conviction or is conclusive for any
reason under section 245C.29, the disqualified individual does not have a right to a
hearing under this section.

(d) The state human services judge shall recommend an order to the commissioner

responsible for supervising the work cannot verify to the commissioner of human services:

(1) that appropriate safety training and information is provided to all persons being
supervised by the agency under this subdivision; and

(2) that all programs involving work by those persons comply with federal
Occupational Safety and Health Administration and state Department of Labor and
Industry safety standards.

A claim that is not valid because of failure to verify safety training or compliance
with safety standards may not be paid by the commissioner of human services or through
the legislative claims process and must be heard, decided, and paid, if appropriate, by the
local government unit responsible for supervising the work of the claimant.

Minnesota Statutes 2015 Supplement, section 256B.431, subdivision 2b,
is amended to read:


Subd. 2b.

Operating costs after July 1, 1985.

(a) For rate years beginning on or
after July 1, 1985, the commissioner shall establish procedures for determining per diem
reimbursement for operating costs.

(b) The commissioner shall contract with an econometric firm with recognized
expertise in and access to national economic change indices that can be applied to the
appropriate cost categories when determining the operating cost payment rate.

(c) The commissioner shall analyze and evaluate each nursing facility's cost report
of allowable operating costs incurred by the nursing facility during the reporting year
immediately preceding the rate year for which the payment rate becomes effective.

(d) The commissioner shall establish limits on actual allowable historical operating
cost per diems based on cost reports of allowable operating costs for the reporting year
that begins October 1, 1983, taking into consideration relevant factors including resident
needs, geographic location, and size of the nursing facility. In developing the geographic
groups for purposes of reimbursement under this section, the commissioner shall ensure
that nursing facilities in any county contiguous to the Minneapolis-St. Paul seven-county
metropolitan area are included in the same geographic group. The limits established by
the commissioner shall not be less, in the aggregate, than the 60th percentile of total
actual allowable historical operating cost per diems for each group of nursing facilities
established under subdivision 1 based on cost reports of allowable operating costs in the
previous reporting year. For rate years beginning on or after July 1, 1989, facilities located
in geographic group I as described in Minnesota Rules, part 9549.0052, on January 1,
1989, may choose to have the commissioner apply either the care related limits or the other
operating cost limits calculated for facilities located in geographic group II, or both, if
either of the limits calculated for the group II facilities is higher. The efficiency incentive
for geographic group I nursing facilities must be calculated based on geographic group I
limits. The phase-in must be established utilizing the chosen limits. For purposes of these
exceptions to the geographic grouping requirements, the definitions in Minnesota Rules,
parts deleted text begin9549.0050deleted text end new text begin9549.0051new text end to 9549.0059 (Emergency), and 9549.0010 to 9549.0080,
apply. The limits established under this paragraph remain in effect until the commissioner
establishes a new base period. Until the new base period is established, the commissioner
shall adjust the limits annually using the appropriate economic change indices established
in paragraph (e). In determining allowable historical operating cost per diems for purposes
of setting limits and nursing facility payment rates, the commissioner shall divide the
allowable historical operating costs by the actual number of resident days, except that
where a nursing facility is occupied at less than 90 percent of licensed capacity days, the
commissioner may establish procedures to adjust the computation of the per diem to
an imputed occupancy level at or below 90 percent. The commissioner shall establish
efficiency incentives as appropriate. The commissioner may establish efficiency incentives
for different operating cost categories. The commissioner shall consider establishing
efficiency incentives in care related cost categories. The commissioner may combine one
or more operating cost categories and may use different methods for calculating payment
rates for each operating cost category or combination of operating cost categories. For the
rate year beginning on July 1, 1985, the commissioner shall:

(1) allow nursing facilities that have an average length of stay of 180 days or less in
their skilled nursing level of care, 125 percent of the care related limit and 105 percent
of the other operating cost limit established by rule; and

(2) exempt nursing facilities licensed on July 1, 1983, by the commissioner to
provide residential services for the physically disabled under Minnesota Rules, parts
9570.2000 to deleted text begin9570.3600deleted text endnew text begin 9570.3400new text end, from the care related limits and allow 105 percent of
the other operating cost limit established by rule.

For the purpose of calculating the other operating cost efficiency incentive for
nursing facilities referred to in clause (1) or (2), the commissioner shall use the other
operating cost limit established by rule before application of the 105 percent.

(e) The commissioner shall establish a composite index or indices by determining
the appropriate economic change indicators to be applied to specific operating cost
categories or combination of operating cost categories.

(f) Each nursing facility shall receive an operating cost payment rate equal to the sum
of the nursing facility's operating cost payment rates for each operating cost category. The
operating cost payment rate for an operating cost category shall be the lesser of the nursing
facility's historical operating cost in the category increased by the appropriate index
established in paragraph (e) for the operating cost category plus an efficiency incentive
established pursuant to paragraph (d) or the limit for the operating cost category increased
by the same index. If a nursing facility's actual historic operating costs are greater than the
prospective payment rate for that rate year, there shall be no retroactive cost settle up. In
establishing payment rates for one or more operating cost categories, the commissioner may
establish separate rates for different classes of residents based on their relative care needs.

(g) The commissioner shall include the reported actual real estate tax liability or
payments in lieu of real estate tax of each nursing facility as an operating cost of that
nursing facility. Allowable costs under this subdivision for payments made by a nonprofit
nursing facility that are in lieu of real estate taxes shall not exceed the amount which the
nursing facility would have paid to a city or township and county for fire, police, sanitation
services, and road maintenance costs had real estate taxes been levied on that property
for those purposes. For rate years beginning on or after July 1, 1987, the reported actual
real estate tax liability or payments in lieu of real estate tax of nursing facilities shall be
adjusted to include an amount equal to one-half of the dollar change in real estate taxes
from the prior year. The commissioner shall include a reported actual special assessment,
and reported actual license fees required by the Minnesota Department of Health, for each
nursing facility as an operating cost of that nursing facility. For rate years beginning
on or after July 1, 1989, the commissioner shall include a nursing facility's reported
Public Employee Retirement Act contribution for the reporting year as apportioned to the
care-related operating cost categories and other operating cost categories multiplied by
the appropriate composite index or indices established pursuant to paragraph (e) as costs
under this paragraph. Total adjusted real estate tax liability, payments in lieu of real
estate tax, actual special assessments paid, the indexed Public Employee Retirement Act
contribution, and license fees paid as required by the Minnesota Department of Health,
for each nursing facility (1) shall be divided by actual resident days in order to compute
the operating cost payment rate for this operating cost category, (2) shall not be used to
compute the care-related operating cost limits or other operating cost limits established
by the commissioner, and (3) shall not be increased by the composite index or indices
established pursuant to paragraph (e), unless otherwise indicated in this paragraph.

(2) The 1990 calendar year investment per bed limit for a facility's depreciable
capital assets must not exceed $44,800 for class B residential beds, and $45,200 for class
B institutional beds.

(3) The investment per bed limit in clause (2) must not be used in determining the

subpart 1, item C, subitem (4), for facilities that were newly constructed or newly
established before May 1, 1990.

(4) The investment per bed limits in clause (2) and Minnesota Rules, part 9553.0060,
subpart 1, item C, subitem (2) shall be adjusted annually beginning January 1, 1991, and

shall be subject to the following conditions:

(1) the term of the lease, including option periods, must not be less than 20 years;

facility or Class B facility, whichever matches the facility licensure, are not eligible for a
variable rate adjustment. Variable rate adjustments may not exceed a 12-month period,
except when approved for purposes established in paragraph (b), clause (1). Variable rate
adjustments approved solely on the basis of changes on a developmental disabilities

participation in a day training and habilitation service when the individual: (i) has reached
the age of 65 or has a change in health condition that makes it difficult for the person
to participate in day training and habilitation services over an extended period of time
because it is medically contraindicated; and (ii) has expressed a desire for change through
the developmental disability screening process under section 256B.092;

(2) a need for additional resources for intensive short-term programming which is
necessary prior to an individual's discharge to a less restrictive, more integrated setting;

(3) a demonstrated medical need that significantly impacts the type or amount of
services needed by the individual; or

(4) a demonstrated behavioral need that significantly impacts the type or amount of
services needed by the individual.

(c) The county of financial responsibility must justify the purpose, the projected
length of time, and the additional funding needed for the facility to meet the needs of
the individual.

(d) The facility shall provide an annual report to the county case manager on
the use of the variable rate funds and the status of the individual on whose behalf the
funds were approved. The county case manager will forward the facility's report with a
recommendation to the commissioner to approve or disapprove a continuation of the
variable rate.

Capitation payment.

(a) The commissioner shall pay a capitation
payment to the county authority and, when applicable under subdivision 6, paragraph (a),
to the service delivery organization for each medical assistance eligible enrollee. The
commissioner shall develop capitation payment rates for the initial contract period for
each demonstration site in consultation with an independent actuary, to ensure that the cost
of services under the demonstration project does not exceed the estimated cost for medical
assistance services for the covered population under the fee-for-service system for the
demonstration period. For each year of the demonstration project, the capitation payment
rate shall be based on 96 percent of the projected per person costs that would otherwise
have been paid under medical assistance fee-for-service during each of those years.
Rates shall be adjusted within the limits of the available risk adjustment technology, as
mandated by section 62Q.03. In addition, the commissioner shall implement appropriate
risk and savings sharing provisions with county administrative entities and, when
applicable under subdivision 6, paragraph (a), service delivery organizations within the
projected budget limits. Capitation rates shall be adjusted, at least annually, to include
any rate increases and payments for expanded or newly covered services for eligible
individuals. The initial demonstration project rate shall include an amount in addition to
the fee-for-service payments to adjust for underutilization of dental services. Any savings
beyond those allowed for the county authority, county administrative entity, or service
delivery organization shall be first used to meet the unmet needs of eligible individuals.

(b) The commissioner shall monitor and evaluate annually the effect of the discount
on consumers, the county authority, and providers of disability services. Findings shall be
reported and recommendations made, as appropriate, to ensure that the discount effect
does not adversely affect the ability of the county administrative entity or providers of
services to provide appropriate services to eligible individuals, and does not result in cost
shifting of eligible individuals to the county authority.

(c) For risk-sharing to occur under this subdivision, the aggregate fee-for-service
cost of covered services provided by the county administrative entity under this section
must exceed the aggregate sum of capitation payments made to the county administrative
entity under this section. The county authority is required to maintain its current level
of nonmedical assistance spending on enrollees. If the county authority spends less in
nonmedical assistance dollars on enrollees than it spent the year prior to the contract year,
the amount of underspending shall be deducted from the aggregate fee-for-service cost
of covered services. The commissioner shall then compare the fee-for-service costs and
capitation payments related to the services provided for the term of this contract. The
commissioner shall base its calculation of the fee-for-service costs on application of the
medical assistance fee schedule to services identified on the county administrative entity's
encounter claims submitted to the commissioner. The aggregate fee-for-service cost shall
not include any third-party recoveries or cost-avoided amounts.

If the commissioner finds that the aggregate fee-for-service cost is greater than the
sum of the capitation payments, the commissioner shall settle according to the following
schedule:

(1) For the first contract year for each project, the commissioner shall pay the county
administrative entity 50 percent of the difference between the sum of the capitation
payments and 100 percent of projected fee-for-service costs. For aggregate fee-for-service
costs in excess of 100 percent of projected fee-for-service costs, the commissioner shall
pay 25 percent of the difference between the aggregate fee-for-service costs and the
projected fee-for-service costs, up to 104 percent of the projected fee-for-service costs.
The county administrative entity shall be responsible for all costs in excess of 104 percent
of projected fee-for-service costs.

(2) For the second contract year for each project, the commissioner shall pay the
county administrative entity 37.5 percent of the difference between the sum of the
capitation payments and 100 percent of projected fee-for-service costs. The county
administrative entity shall be responsible for all costs in excess of 100 percent of projected
fee-for-service costs.

(3) For the third contract year for each project, the commissioner shall pay the
county administrative entity 25 percent of the difference between the sum of the capitation
payments and 100 percent of projected fee-for-service costs. The county administrative
entity shall be responsible for all costs in excess of 100 percent of projected fee-for-service
costs.

(4) For the fourth and subsequent contract years for each project, the county
administrative entity shall be responsible for all costs in excess of the capitation payments.

(d) In addition to other payments under this subdivision, the commissioner may
increase payments by up to 0.25 percent of the projected per-person costs that would
otherwise have been paid under medical assistance fee-for-service. The commissioner
may make the increased payments to:

(1) offset rate increases for regional treatment services under subdivision 22 which
are higher than were expected by the commissioner when the capitation was set at 96
percent; and

(2) implement incentives to encourage appropriate, high quality, efficient services.

Secretary of Health and Human Services to provide home and community-based waiver
services under title XIX of the Social Security Act for residents who are not eligible for an

fund for beds under this section to other funding programs administered by the department
after consultation with the county or counties in which the affected beds are located.

Rate increases.

An agency may not increase the rates negotiated for
group residential housing above those in effect on June 30, 1993, except as provided

(a) An agency may increase the rates for group residential housing settings to the
MSA equivalent rate for those settings whose current rate is below the MSA equivalent rate.

(b) An agency may increase the rates for residents in adult foster care whose
difficulty of care has increased. The total group residential housing rate for these residents

include nor increase group residential housing difficulty of care rates for adults in foster
care whose difficulty of care is eligible for funding by home and community-based waiver
programs under title XIX of the Social Security Act.

(c) The room and board rates will be increased each year when the MSA equivalent
rate is adjusted for SSI cost-of-living increases by the amount of the annual SSI increase,
less the amount of the increase in the medical assistance personal needs allowance under
section 256B.35.

(d) When a group residential housing rate is used to pay for an individual's room
and board, or other costs necessary to provide room and board, the rate payable to
the residence must continue for up to 18 calendar days per incident that the person is
temporarily absent from the residence, not to exceed 60 days in a calendar year, if the
absence or absences have received the prior approval of the county agency's social service
staff. Prior approval is not required for emergency absences due to crisis, illness, or injury.

(e) For facilities meeting substantial change criteria within the prior year. Substantial
change criteria exists if the group residential housing establishment experiences a 25
percent increase or decrease in the total number of its beds, if the net cost of capital
additions or improvements is in excess of 15 percent of the current market value of the
residence, or if the residence physically moves, or changes its licensure, and incurs a
resulting increase in operation and property costs.

(f) Until June 30, 1994, an agency may increase by up to five percent the total
rate paid for recipients of assistance under sections 256D.01 to 256D.21 or 256D.33 to
256D.54 who reside in residences that are licensed by the commissioner of health as
a boarding care home, but are not certified for the purposes of the medical assistance

Minnesota Statutes 2015 Supplement, section 260C.221, is amended to read:


260C.221 RELATIVE SEARCH.

(a) The responsible social services agency shall exercise due diligence to identify
and notify adult relatives prior to placement or within 30 days after the child's removal
from the parent. The county agency shall consider placement with a relative under this
section without delay and whenever the child must move from or be returned to foster
care. The relative search required by this section shall be comprehensive in scope. After a
finding that the agency has made reasonable efforts to conduct the relative search under
this paragraph, the agency has the continuing responsibility to appropriately involve
relatives, who have responded to the notice required under this paragraph, in planning
for the child and to continue to consider relatives according to the requirements of
section 260C.212, subdivision 2. At any time during the course of juvenile protection
proceedings, the court may order the agency to reopen its search for relatives when it is in
the child's best interest to do so.

(b) The relative search required by this section shall include both maternal and
paternal adult relatives of the child; all adult grandparents; all legal parents, guardians or
custodiansdeleted text begin;deleted text endnew text begin ofnew text end the child's siblings; and any other adult relatives suggested by the child's
parents, subject to the exceptions due to family violence in paragraph (c). The search shall
also include getting information from the child in an age-appropriate manner about who
the child considers to be family members and important friends with whom the child has
resided or had significant contact. The relative search required under this section must
fulfill the agency's duties under the Indian Child Welfare Act regarding active efforts
to prevent the breakup of the Indian family under United States Code, title 25, section
1912(d), and to meet placement preferences under United States Code, title 25, section
1915. The relatives must be notified:

(1) of the need for a foster home for the child, the option to become a placement
resource for the child, and the possibility of the need for a permanent placement for the
child;

(2) of their responsibility to keep the responsible social services agency and the court
informed of their current address in order to receive notice in the event that a permanent
placement is sought for the child and to receive notice of the permanency progress review
hearing under section 260C.204. A relative who fails to provide a current address to the
responsible social services agency and the court forfeits the right to receive notice of the
possibility of permanent placement and of the permanency progress review hearing under
section 260C.204. A decision by a relative not to be identified as a potential permanent
placement resource or participate in planning for the child at the beginning of the case
shall not affect whether the relative is considered for placement of the child with that
relative later;

(3) that the relative may participate in the care and planning for the child, including
that the opportunity for such participation may be lost by failing to respond to the notice
sent under this subdivision. "Participate in the care and planning" includes, but is not
limited to, participation in case planning for the parent and child, identifying the strengths
and needs of the parent and child, supervising visits, providing respite and vacation visits
for the child, providing transportation to appointments, suggesting other relatives who
might be able to help support the case plan, and to the extent possible, helping to maintain
the child's familiar and regular activities and contact with friends and relatives;

(4) of the family foster care licensing requirements, including how to complete an
application and how to request a variance from licensing standards that do not present a
safety or health risk to the child in the home under section 245A.04 and supports that are
available for relatives and children who reside in a family foster home; and

(5) of the relatives' right to ask to be notified of any court proceedings regarding
the child, to attend the hearings, and of a relative's right or opportunity to be heard by the
court as required under section 260C.152, subdivision 5.

(c) A responsible social services agency may disclose private data, as defined in
sections 13.02 and 626.556, to relatives of the child for the purpose of locating and
assessing a suitable placement and may use any reasonable means of identifying and
locating relatives including the Internet or other electronic means of conducting a search.
The agency shall disclose data that is necessary to facilitate possible placement with
relatives and to ensure that the relative is informed of the needs of the child so the
relative can participate in planning for the child and be supportive of services to the child
and family. If the child's parent refuses to give the responsible social services agency
information sufficient to identify the maternal and paternal relatives of the child, the
agency shall ask the juvenile court to order the parent to provide the necessary information.
If a parent makes an explicit request that a specific relative not be contacted or considered
for placement due to safety reasons including past family or domestic violence, the agency
shall bring the parent's request to the attention of the court to determine whether the
parent's request is consistent with the best interests of the child and the agency shall not
contact the specific relative when the juvenile court finds that contacting the specific
relative would endanger the parent, guardian, child, sibling, or any family member.

(d) At a regularly scheduled hearing not later than three months after the child's
placement in foster care and as required in section 260C.202, the agency shall report to
the court:

(1) its efforts to identify maternal and paternal relatives of the child and to engage
the relatives in providing support for the child and family, and document that the relatives
have been provided the notice required under paragraph (a); and

(2) its decision regarding placing the child with a relative as required under section
260C.212, subdivision 2, and to ask relatives to visit or maintain contact with the child in
order to support family connections for the child, when placement with a relative is not
possible or appropriate.

(e) Notwithstanding chapter 13, the agency shall disclose data about particular
relatives identified, searched for, and contacted for the purposes of the court's review of
the agency's due diligence.

(f) When the court is satisfied that the agency has exercised due diligence to
identify relatives and provide the notice required in paragraph (a), the court may find that
reasonable efforts have been made to conduct a relative search to identify and provide
notice to adult relatives as required under section 260.012, paragraph (e), clause (3). If the
court is not satisfied that the agency has exercised due diligence to identify relatives and
provide the notice required in paragraph (a), the court may order the agency to continue its
search and notice efforts and to report back to the court.

(g) When the placing agency determines that permanent placement proceedings are
necessary because there is a likelihood that the child will not return to a parent's care, the
agency must send the notice provided in paragraph (h), may ask the court to modify the
duty of the agency to send the notice required in paragraph (h), or may ask the court to
completely relieve the agency of the requirements of paragraph (h). The relative notification
requirements of paragraph (h) do not apply when the child is placed with an appropriate
relative or a foster home that has committed to adopting the child or taking permanent
legal and physical custody of the child and the agency approves of that foster home for
permanent placement of the child. The actions ordered by the court under this section
must be consistent with the best interests, safety, permanency, and welfare of the child.

(h) Unless required under the Indian Child Welfare Act or relieved of this duty by the
court under paragraph (f), when the agency determines that it is necessary to prepare for
permanent placement determination proceedings, or in anticipation of filing a termination
of parental rights petition, the agency shall send notice to the relatives, any adult with
whom the child is currently residing, any adult with whom the child has resided for one
year or longer in the past, and any adults who have maintained a relationship or exercised
visitation with the child as identified in the agency case plan. The notice must state that a
permanent home is sought for the child and that the individuals receiving the notice may
indicate to the agency their interest in providing a permanent home. The notice must state
that within 30 days of receipt of the notice an individual receiving the notice must indicate
to the agency the individual's interest in providing a permanent home for the child or that
the individual may lose the opportunity to be considered for a permanent placement.
