Legal Authority

Minn. Stat. §256B.092, subd. 8a, (b) and (c)


Host county concurrence: County of financial responsibility wishes to place a person in another county for services from an Intermediate Care Facility for Persons with Developmental Disabilities.

County Concurrence

When a case manager screens and authorizes a person for services in an ICF/DD and determines the ICF/DD is located in a county other than the CFR, the CFR requests concurrence of the county where the person is choosing to receive ICF/DD services.

Denial of Placement

The county of service may refuse to concur if there has been no authorization for the admission to an ICF/DD by the admission review team.

Process for Denial of Host County Concurrence

The county of service shall notify the CFR of concurrence of refusal to concur no later than 20 working days following receipt of the written request. Unless involved lead agencies make other mutually acceptable arrangements, the CFR is responsible for costs of social services and the costs associated with the development and maintenance of the placement.

The county of service may request the CFR to purchase case management services from the county of service or from a contracted provider of case management when the CFR is not providing case management as defined in this section and rules adopted under this section unless the involved lead agencies make other mutually acceptable arrangements.

DHS may establish standards for payment limits under this section and resolve financial disputes between lead agencies per Minn. Stat. §256G. 09.
