Additional conditions may include but are not limited to restricting service authorizations for a duration of no more than one month and requiring a qualified professional to monitor and report services on a monthly basis.
(c) A recipient placed in the Minnesota restricted recipient program under this section may appeal the placement according to section 256.045.
