Author: Senator Karin Housley
 
Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
 
Date: March 8, 2017



 

SF 1433 modifies to whom reimbursements are made for the cost of nursing assistant training and competency evaluations. 

Section 1 includes the fiscal agents of adult training programs as a permitted recipient of reimbursable payments from nursing home and certified boarding care homes.

Section 2 (144A.611, subdivision 2, paragraph (a)) requires a nursing assistant to actually incur the expense of training and competency evaluations in order to be a permitted recipient of reimbursable payments from nursing home and certified boarding care homes.

Paragraph (b) requires a nursing home or certified boarding care homes to reimburse entities that receive state or federal funds for providing training and competency testing when the nursing assistant does not pay the entity for the training and testing the nursing assistant received.

Section 3 (144A.611, subdivision 4, paragraph (a)) clarifies that adult basic education is not a part of the nursing assistant training program, clarifies the definition of “adult basic education,” removes authority of nursing homes and boarding care homes to reimburse nursing assistants for adult basic education training programs, and permits nursing homes and boarding care homes to reimburse the fiscal agents of an adult basic education training program.

Paragraph (b) makes conforming and technical changes.

Paragraph (c) removes a prohibition against adult basic education training programs billing nursing assistants before the nursing assistant has been employed by a nursing home or certified boarding care homes for 90 days.
