S.F. No. 996 - Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) Vacant Beds Treatment Modification for Therapeutic Leave Days; Home and Community-Based Services Waiver Consolidation Study and Appropriation
Author: Senator Bruce D. Anderson
Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
Date: February 24, 2017


SF No. 996 modifies the conditions under which an intermediate care facility for persons with disabilities can be reimbursed for therapeutic leave days.  Under current Department of Human Services rules, a facility cannot be paid for any therapeutic leave days if the facility has more than 30 vacant bed days in a calendar year. SF 996 adds language to statute that changes this restriction on payments for therapeutic leave days.
