                  children and adults; extending the time period for 
                  review of individual community support plans; 
                  modifying rules extending the time period for updating

                  section 245.4711, subdivision 9. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 245.4711, 
        subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 4.  [INDIVIDUAL COMMUNITY SUPPORT PLAN.] (a) The case 
        manager must develop an individual community support plan for 
        each adult that incorporates the client's individual treatment 
        plan.  The individual treatment plan may not be a substitute for 
        the development of an individual community support plan.  The 
        individual community support plan must be developed within 30 
        days of client intake and reviewed at least every 90 180 days 
        after it is developed, unless the case manager receives a 
        written request from the client or the client's family for a 
        review of the plan every 90 days after it is developed.  The 
        case manager is responsible for developing the individual 
        community support plan based on a diagnostic assessment and a 
        functional assessment and for implementing and monitoring the 
        delivery of services according to the individual community 
        support plan.  To the extent possible, the adult with serious 
        and persistent mental illness, the person's family, advocates, 
        service providers, and significant others must be involved in 
        all phases of development and implementation of the individual 
        or family community support plan.  
           (b) The client's individual community support plan must 
        state: 
           (1) the goals of each service; 
           (2) the activities for accomplishing each goal; 
           (3) a schedule for each activity; and 
           (4) the frequency of face-to-face contacts by the case 
        manager, as appropriate to client need and the implementation of 
        the individual community support plan. 
           Sec. 2.  Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 245.4881, 
        subdivision 4, is amended to read: 
           Subd. 4.  [INDIVIDUAL FAMILY COMMUNITY SUPPORT PLAN.] (a) 
        For each child, the case manager must develop an individual 
        family community support plan that incorporates the child's 
        individual treatment plan.  The individual treatment plan may 
        not be a substitute for the development of an individual family 
        community support plan.  The case manager is responsible for 
        developing the individual family community support plan within 
        30 days of intake based on a diagnostic assessment and a 
        functional assessment and for implementing and monitoring the 
        delivery of services according to the individual family 
        community support plan.  The case manager must review the 
        plan at least every 90 180 calendar days after it is developed, 
        unless the case manager has received a written request from the 
        child's family or an advocate for the child for a review of the 
        plan every 90 days after it is developed.  To the extent 
        appropriate, the child with severe emotional disturbance, the 
        child's family, advocates, service providers, and significant 
        others must be involved in all phases of development and 
        implementation of the individual family community support plan.  
        Notwithstanding the lack of an individual family community 
        support plan, the case manager shall assist the child and 
        child's family in accessing the needed services listed in 
        section 245.4884, subdivision 1.  
           (b) The child's individual family community support plan 
        must state:  
           (1) the goals and expected outcomes of each service and 
        criteria for evaluating the effectiveness and appropriateness of 
        the service; 
           (2) the activities for accomplishing each goal; 
           (3) a schedule for each activity; and 
           (4) the frequency of face-to-face contacts by the case 
        manager, as appropriate to client need and the implementation of 
        the individual family community support plan.  
           Sec. 3.  [REVISION OF RULES.] 
           (a) The rules in effect on February 12, 1997, requiring 
        mental health case managers to review and update the adult's 
        individual community support plan, and the adult's functional 
        assessment every 90 days, shall be modified to require a review, 
        update, and functional assessment at least every 180 days after 
        the development of the first plan.  The modified rules must 
        enable a client or a client's family to request 90-day intervals 
        for updating the individual community support plan and 
        completing the functional assessment.  
           (b) The rules in effect on February 12, 1997, requiring 
        mental health case managers to review and update the child's 
        individual community support plan, and the child's functional 
        assessment every 90 days, shall be modified to require a review, 
        update, and functional assessment at least every 180 days after 
        the development of the first plan.  The modified rules must 
        enable a child's family or an advocate for the child to request 
        90-day intervals for updating the individual family community 
        support plan and completing the functional assessment.  
           Sec. 4.  [REPEALER.] 
           Minnesota Statutes 1996, section 245.4711, subdivision 9, 
        is repealed.
