Subd. 8.  Average daily membership.  (a) Membership for pupils in grades kindergarten through 12 and for prekindergarten pupils with disabilities shall mean the number of pupils on the current roll of the school, counted from the date of entry until withdrawal.  The date of withdrawal shall mean the day the pupil permanently leaves the school or the date it is officially known that the pupil has left or has been legally excused.  However, a pupil, regardless of age, who has been absent from school for 15 consecutive school days during the regular school year or for five consecutive school days during summer school or intersession classes of flexible school year programs without receiving instruction in the home or hospital shall be dropped from the roll and classified as withdrawn.  Nothing in this section shall be construed as waiving the compulsory attendance provisions cited in section 120A.22.  Average daily membership equals the sum for all pupils of the number of days of the school year each pupil is enrolled in the district's schools divided by the number of days the schools are in session.  Days of summer school or intersession classes of flexible school year programs are only included in the computation of membership for pupils with a disability not appropriately served primarily in the regular classroom.  A student must not be counted as more than 1.2 pupils in average daily membership under this section and section 126C.10, subdivision 2a, paragraph (b).  When the initial total average daily membership exceeds 1.2 for a pupil enrolled in more than one school district during the fiscal year, each district's average daily membership must be reduced proportionately.

"Section 1.  [477A.0126] REIMBURSEMENT OF COUNTY AND TRIBES FOR CERTAIN OUT‑OF‑HOME PLACEMENT.

 

Subdivision 1.  Definition.  For purposes of this section, "out-of-home placement" means 24-hour substitute care for an Indian child as defined by section 260C.007, subdivision 21, placed under chapter 260C and the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), away from the child's parent or guardian and for whom the county social services agency or county correctional agency has been assigned responsibility for the child's placement and care, which includes placement in foster care under section 260C.007, subdivision 18, and a correctional facility pursuant to a court order.

 

Subd. 2.  Determination of nonfederal share of costs.  (a) By July 1, 2017, each county shall report the following information to the commissioners of human services and corrections:

 

(1) the separate amounts paid out of the county's social service agency and its corrections budget for out‑of‑home placement of children under the ICWA in calendar years 2013, 2014, and 2015; and

 

(2) the number of case days associated with the expenditures from each budget.

 

The commissioner of human services shall prescribe the format of the report.  By July 15, 2017, the commissioner of human services, in consultation with the commissioner of corrections, shall certify to the commissioner of revenue and to the legislative committees with jurisdiction over local government aids and out-of-home placement funding whether the data reported under this subdivision accurately reflect total expenditures by counties for out‑of‑home placement costs of children under the ICWA.

 

(b) By January 1, 2018, and each January 1 thereafter, each county shall report to the commissioners of human services and corrections the separate amounts paid out of the county's social service agency and its corrections budget for out-of-home placement of children under the ICWA in the calendar years two years before the current calendar year along with the number of case days associated with the expenditures from each budget.  The commissioner of human services shall prescribe the format of the report.

 

(c) Until the commissioner of human services develops another mechanism for collecting and verifying data on out-of-home placements of children under the ICWA, and the legislature authorizes the use of that data, the data collected under this subdivision must be used to calculate payments under subdivision 3.  The commissioner of human services shall certify the nonfederal out-of-home placement costs for the three prior calendar years for each county and the amount of any federal reimbursement received by a tribe under the ICWA for the three prior calendar years to the commissioner of revenue by June 1 of the year before the aid payment.

 

Subd. 3.  Aid for counties.  For aids payable in calendar year 2018 and thereafter, the amount of reimbursement to each county is a county's proportionate share of the appropriation in subdivision 6 that remains after the aid for tribes has been paid.  Each county's proportionate share is based on the county's average nonfederal share of the cost for out-of-home placement of children under the ICWA for the three calendar years that were certified by the commissioner of human services by June 1 of the prior year, provided that the commissioner of human services, in consultation with the commissioner of corrections, certifies to the commissioner of revenue that accurate data are available to make the aid determination under this section.  For aids payable in calendar year 2018, each county's proportionate share is based on the county's nonfederal share of the cost for out-of-home placement of children under the ICWA that was certified by the commissioner of human services by July 15, 2017.


Journal of the House - 24th Day - Monday, March 6, 2017 - Top of Page 1002

(1) five percent of the average reimbursement amount received from the federal government for out-of-home placement costs for the three calendar years that were certified by June 1 of the prior year; or

 

(2) $200,000.

 

Subd. 5.  Payments.  The commissioner of revenue must compute the amount of the reimbursement aid payable to each county and tribe under this section.  On or before August 1 of each year, the commissioner shall certify the amount to be paid to each county and tribe in the following year.  The commissioner shall pay reimbursement aid annually at the times provided in section 477A.015.

(f) A corrective action is not required for conditions resulting from a flood or other act of nature.

 

(g) A landowner agent or operator of a landowner may not remove or willfully degrade a riparian buffer or water quality practice, wholly or partially, unless the agent or operator has obtained a signed statement from the property owner stating that the permission for the work has been granted by the unit of government authorized to approve the work in this section or that a buffer or water quality practice is not required as validated by the soil and water conservation district.  Removal or willful degradation of a riparian buffer or water quality practice, wholly or partially, by an agent or operator is a separate and independent offense and may be subject to the corrective actions and penalties in this subdivision.

(d) If only a portion of a county is certified as eligible to receive aid under subdivision 2, the aid otherwise payable to that county under this section must be multiplied by a fraction, the numerator of which is the buffer protection map miles of the certified watershed districts contained within the county and the denominator of which is the total buffer protection map miles of the county.

 

(e) Any aid that would otherwise be paid to a county or portion of a county that is not certified under subdivision 2 shall be paid to the Board of Water and Soil Resources for enforcing and implementing the riparian protection and water quality practices under section 103F.48.

 

Subd. 4.  Payments.  The commissioner of revenue must compute the amount of riparian protection aid payable to each eligible county and to the Board of Water and Soil Resources under this section.  On or before August 1 each year, the commissioner must certify the amount to be paid to each county and the Board of Water and Soil Resources in the following year, except that the payments for 2017 must be certified by July 15, 2017.  The commissioner must pay riparian protection aid to counties and to the Board of Water and Soil Resources in the same manner and at the same time as aid payments under section 477A.015.

 

Subd. 5.  Appropriations.  $10,000,000 each year is appropriated from the general fund to the commissioner of revenue to make the payments required under this section.

(1) will stabilize or reduce premium rates in the individual market;


Journal of the House - 24th Day - Monday, March 6, 2017 - Top of Page 1015

(2) will increase participation in the individual market;

 

(3) mitigate the impact high-risk individuals have on premium rates in the individual market;

 

(4) take into account any federal funding available for the plan;

 

(5) take into account the total amount available to fund the plan; and

 

(6) for benefit year 2019 and thereafter, include cost savings mechanisms related to the management of health care services.

 

(b) The attachment point for the plan is the threshold amount for claims costs incurred by an eligible health carrier for an enrolled individual's covered benefits in a benefit year, beyond which the claims costs for benefits are eligible for reinsurance payments.  The attachment point shall be set by the board at $50,000 or more, but not exceeding the reinsurance cap.

 

(c) The coinsurance rate for the plan is the rate at which the association will reimburse an eligible health carrier for claims incurred for an enrolled individual's covered benefits in a benefit year above the attachment point and below the reinsurance cap.  The coinsurance rate shall be set by the board at a rate between 50 and 70 percent.

 

(d) The reinsurance cap is the threshold amount for claims costs incurred by an eligible health carrier for an enrolled individual's covered benefits, after which the claims costs for benefits are no longer eligible for reinsurance payments.  The reinsurance cap shall be set by the board at $250,000 or less.

(b) If the approved payment parameters are not fully funded by the legislature by July 1 of the year before the applicable benefit year, the board, in consultation with the commissioner and the commissioner of management and budget, shall propose payment parameters within the available appropriations.  The commissioner must permit an eligible health carrier to revise an applicable rate filing based on the final payment parameters for the next benefit year.

 

Subd. 4.  Calculation of reinsurance payments.  (a) Each reinsurance payment must be calculated with respect to an eligible health carrier's incurred claims costs for an individual enrollee's covered benefits in the applicable benefit year.  If the claims costs do not exceed the attachment point, the reinsurance payment is $0.  If the claims costs exceed the attachment point, the reinsurance payment shall be calculated as the product of the coinsurance rate and the lesser of:

 

(1) the claims costs minus the attachment point; or

 

(2) the reinsurance cap minus the attachment point.

 

(b) The board must ensure that reinsurance payments made to eligible health carriers do not exceed the total amount paid by the eligible health carrier for any eligible claim.  "Total amount paid of an eligible claim" means the amount paid by the eligible health carrier based upon the allowed amount less any deductible, coinsurance, or co‑payment, as of the time the data are submitted or made accessible under subdivision 5, paragraph (e).

(e) In order to receive reinsurance payments, an eligible health carrier must provide the association with access to the data within the dedicated data environment established by the eligible health carrier under the federal risk adjustment program under United States Code, title 42, section 18063.  Eligible health carriers must submit an attestation to the board asserting compliance with the dedicated data environments, data requirements, establishment and usage of masked enrollee identification numbers, and data submission deadlines.

 

(f) An eligible health carrier must provide the access described in paragraph (e) for the applicable benefit year by April 30 of each year of the year following the end of the applicable benefit year.

 

(g) An eligible health carrier must maintain documents and records, whether paper, electronic, or in other media, sufficient to substantiate the requests for reinsurance payments made pursuant to this section for a period of at least six years.  An eligible health carrier must also make those documents and records available upon request from the commissioner for purposes of verification, investigation, audit, or other review of reinsurance payment requests.

(2) whether the public governing bodies have access to tickets, suites, or other premium amenities for events conducted in the facilities they oversee, including the terms under which the access is provided; and

 

(3) whether the public governing bodies have adopted policies or procedures to ensure their oversight activities, including those of individual members acting on behalf of the governing body, are transparent and in furtherance of the public interest.

 

The review must compare and contrast the practices of each public governing body and may recommend best practices for improving the governance, operations, and public accountability of each body.  As necessary, the review may also propose any changes in law necessary to implement these best practices."
