The county board must have a legally binding written agreement with the state for each approved waiver plan to receive home and community-based services money. The agreement must include provisions specifying that:
home and community-based services money will be used only for services provided by providers who meet the requirements of part 9525.1850 and have a legally binding contract with the host county which meets the requirements of part 9525.1870;
the county board will comply with Minnesota Statutes, chapter 256B, and rules adopted thereunder; and
the county board will comply with United States Code, title 42, sections 1396 et seq., and all regulations promulgated thereunder.
If the county board provides home and community-based services in addition to case management, the agreement must specify the services to be provided by the county board.
The agreement must include a provision specifying that the county board agrees that the commissioner may reduce or discontinue reimbursement, or seek other legal remedies if the county board fails to comply with the provisions of the agreement and parts 9525.1800 to 9525.1930.
