S.F. No. 2710 - Amends the Chemical Dependency Treatment Chapter of Law
Author: Senator Jeff Hayden
Prepared By: Joan White, Senate Counsel (651/296-3814)
Date: April 1, 2016


Section 1 (254B.03, subd. 4) changes the county share with regard to chemical dependency services for publically funded clients from 22.95 percent to 15 percent.  This section also changes the county share of the state collection from a private or third-party payment from 22.9 percent to 15 percent.

Section 2 (254B.04, subd. 2a) adds language stating that it should not be a factor in making placements whether the treatment facility has been designated an institution for mental disease (IMD).

Section 3 (254B.06, subd. 2) requires the commissioner to allocate 85 percent, instead of 77.05 percent, of the patient and third-party payments to the special revenue account, and allocate 22.95 percent, instead of 15 percent, to the county of financially responsible for the patient.

Section 4 (254B.06, subd. 4) adds a new subdivision prohibiting the commissioner from denying reimbursement to a program designation as an IMD due to a reduction in federal financial participation and the addition of new residential beds.
