The State is responsible to contract with ICF/DD facilities for two-year periods. The ICF/DD contract is a legal contract between the State of Minnesota and facilities providing care to persons with developmental disabilities.
Each ICF/DD that holds a Minnesota Health Care Programs provider number must operate under an ICF/DD contract with Disability Services Division (DSD). Providers who administer more than one facility will have one contract for each licensed facility in operation.
