BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:
Minnesota Statutes 2022, section 256B.761, is amended to read:
(a) Effective for services rendered on or after July 1, 2001, payment for medication
management provided to psychiatric patients, outpatient mental health services, day treatment
services, home-based mental health services, and family community support services shall
be paid at the lower of (1) submitted charges, or (2) 75.6 percent of the 50th percentile of
(b) Effective July 1, 2001, the medical assistance rates for outpatient mental health
services provided by an entity that operates: (1) a Medicare-certified comprehensive
outpatient rehabilitation facility; and (2) a facility that was certified prior to January 1, 1993,
with at least 33 percent of the clients receiving rehabilitation services in the most recent
calendar year who are medical assistance recipients, will be increased by 38 percent, when
those services are provided within the comprehensive outpatient rehabilitation facility and
provided to residents of nursing facilities owned by the entity.
(c) In addition to rate increases otherwise provided, the commissioner may restructure
coverage policy and rates to improve access to adult rehabilitative mental health services
under section 256B.0623 and related mental health support services under section 256B.021,
subdivision 4, paragraph (f), clause (2). For state fiscal years 2015 and 2016, the projected
state share of increased costs due to this paragraph is transferred from adult mental health
grants under sections 245.4661 and 256E.12. The transfer for fiscal year 2016 is a permanent
base adjustment for subsequent fiscal years. Payments made to managed care plans and
county-based purchasing plans under sections 256B.69, 256B.692, and 256L.12 shall reflect
the rate changes described in this paragraph.
(d) Any ratables effective before July 1, 2015, do not apply to early intensive
developmental and behavioral intervention (EIDBI) benefits described in section 256B.0949.
