Prepared By: Liam Monahan, Senate Analyst (651/296-1791)
Date: February 21, 2020


Section 1 (245A.11, subdivision 2a) allows the commissioner until June 30, 2024, to issue licenses for a fifth bed to corporate foster care settings licensed prior to March 1, 2016. 

Section 2 (245D.071, subdivision 3) modifies the existing timeline for a provider to conduct a 45-day planning meeting to allow the meeting to take place either before the 45th day of service is provided or within 60 days of the first day on which service is provided. Under current law, the planning meeting must occur within 45 days of service initiation.

Section 3 (245D.081, subdivision 2) permits the staff member of a 245D licensed HCBS provider who is responsible for coordinating the delivery and evaluation of a waiver recipient’s care to delegate the direct observation and assessment of a direct support staff to an individual the coordinator has previously deemed competent in the activities of the direct support staff that are being observed.
