                            CHAPTER 300-S.F.No. 2793 
                  An act relating to health services; requiring the 
                  commissioner of human services to develop a plan to 
                  certify out-of-state facilities that care for children 
                  with severe emotional disturbance. 
        BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA: 
           Section 1.  [PLAN TO CERTIFY OUT-OF-STATE FACILITIES THAT 
        CARE FOR CHILDREN WITH SEVERE EMOTIONAL DISTURBANCE.] 
           The commissioner of human services shall develop a plan to 
        expand the provisions of Minnesota Statutes, section 256B.0945, 
        to allow medical assistance to reimburse counties for children's 
        mental health residential treatment services provided in 
        out-of-state facilities located in the border states of Iowa, 
        North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.  The commissioner's 
        plan must include a certification procedure in lieu of state 
        licensing for these out-of-state facilities and a method to set 
        rates for out-of-state care comparable to those paid for care 
        provided by in-state facilities.  The plan, including proposed 
        legislation, is due to the house of representatives and senate 
        committees having jurisdiction over human services issues by 
        December 15, 2002. 
           Presented to the governor March 26, 2002
