S.F. No. 1250 - Consumer-Directed Community Supports Modification - As Proposed to be Amended by the A-1 Amendment
 
Author: Senator Jim Abeler
 
Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
 
Date: March 11, 2019



 

SF 1250 modifies the budget methodology for the consumer-directed community supports option available under the developmental disabilities, brain injury, community alternative care, and community alternative for disabled individuals waivers, and establishes a onetime grant to promote the consumer-directed community supports option.

Section 1 (Laws 2017, First Special Session chapter 6, article 1, section 45, subdivision 2) excludes from an individual’s consumer-directed community supports budget the cost of behavioral interventions and instead requires the individual’s budget to be supplemented with standard waiver spending to cover the costs for behavioral interventions.

Subdivision 3 allows people who have elected the consumer-directed community supports option to elect to establish a shared services arrangement with other people who have elected the consumer-directed community supports option. This subdivision specifies requirements for shared service arrangements and grants the commissioner authority to set rates for shared services.

Sections 2 and 3 establish a onetime grant program of an unspecified amount for regional and local projects designed to promote election of the consumer-directed community supports option.

Section 4 is a Revisor’s instruction to codify existing law related to the consumer-directed community supports option.
