S.F. No. 1012 - Home and Community Settings for People with Disabilities (as Amended by the Author’s A-1 Delete-Everything Amendment)
Author: Senator Jeff Hayden
Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
Date: March 24, 2015


S.F. No. 1012 updates Minnesota Statutes to come into compliance with new federal requirements governing settings in which people with disabilities may receive home and community-based waiver services.

Section 1 (256B.492) Paragraph (a) simplifies language by stating that the only settings in which a person with a disability may receive DD, CADI, BI, and CAC waiver services are those settings that comply with the requirements of either (1) the new federal requirements, the federally approved plan for Minnesota to come into compliance with those requirements, and the waiver, or (2) the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program.

Paragraph (b) retains old language that specifies some of the qualities of a setting that are inconsistent with the new setting requirements.

Paragraphs (c) to (e) eliminate, effective July 1, 2016, exceptions to the setting requirements.

Paragraph (f) strikes obsolete language.
