Author: Senator Julie A. Rosen
Prepared By: Joan White, Senate Counsel (651/296-3814)
Date: March 15, 2016


Section 1 (256B.0621, subdivision 10), modifies the relocation targeted case management section of law by adding a cross-reference to section 3, allowing interactive video for relocation case management services, which helps recipients gain access to needed services and supports if they choose to move from an institution to the community.

Section 2 (256B.0625, subdivision 20), adds a cross-reference to section 3 in the mental health targeted case management section of law, to allow contact by interactive video.

Section 3 (256B.0924, subdivision 4a), allows interactive video contact for targeted case management for vulnerable adults and adults with developmental disabilities.  This section also sets the parameters for contact by interactive video for targeted case management in this section and sections 1 and 2.  Interactive video is subject to federal approval, and is allowed if:

  1. The person receiving targeted case management services is in a setting that is staffed 24 hours per day, seven days per week;
  2. It is in the best interests of the person and is deemed appropriate by the provider;
  3. It is approved as part of the person’s written personal service or case plan; and
  4. It is used for up to, but not more than, 50 percent of the minimum required face-to-face contacts.
