Subject to exceptions in section 256B.25, subdivision 3, no nursing facility may receive any state or local payment for providing care to a person eligible for medical assistance, except under the medical assistance program.
No medical assistance payments shall be made to any nursing facility unless the nursing facility is certified to participate in the medical assistance program under title XIX of the federal Social Security Act and has in effect a provider agreement with the commissioner meeting the requirements of state and federal statutes and rules. No medical assistance payments shall be made to any nursing facility unless the nursing facility complies with all requirements of Minnesota Statutes including, but not limited to, this chapter and rules adopted under it that govern participation in the program. This section applies whether the nursing facility participates fully in the medical assistance program or is withdrawing from the medical assistance program. No future payments may be made to any nursing facility which has withdrawn or is withdrawing from the medical assistance program except as provided in section 256B.48, subdivision 1a, or federal law. Payments may also be made under a court order entered on or before June 7, 1985, unless the court order is reversed on appeal.
