New law reorganizes, clarifies statutes regarding disability waivers

A new law reorganizes statutes regarding the disability waiver rate system, which sets reimbursement rates for home- and community-based disability services under Medicaid.

It also aims to make the statutes easier to read and amend, by, for example, rendering terms more consistent and making the basic format of the rate calculations consistent.

And it requires the Department of Human Services to recommend an update to the competitive workforce factor every two years. It cannot change by more than 2%.

The law, effective July 1, 2022, is sponsored by Rep. Jennifer Schultz (DFL-Duluth) and Sen. Jim Abeler (R-Anoka).
