(b) Money recovered on behalf of a fund in the state treasury other than the general fund may be deposited in that fund.

 

(c) This section does not prohibit a state official from distributing money to a person or entity other than the state in litigation or potential litigation in which the state is a defendant or potential defendant.

 

(d) State agencies may accept funds as directed by a federal court for any restitution or monetary penalty under United States Code, title 18, section 3663(a)(3), or United States Code, title 18, section 3663A(a)(3).  Funds received must be deposited in a special revenue account and are appropriated to the commissioner of the agency for the purpose as directed by the federal court.

(b) Money recovered on behalf of a fund in the state treasury other than the general fund may be deposited in that fund.

 

(c) This section does not prohibit a state official from distributing money to a person or entity other than the state in litigation or potential litigation in which the state is a defendant or potential defendant.

Gruenhagen moved to amend H. F. No. 2128, the third engrossment, as amended, as follows:

 

Page 311, after line 4, insert:

 

"Sec. 11.  [62K.16] REFERENCE-BASED PRICING HEALTH PLAN.

 

Subdivision 1.  General.  Notwithstanding any law to the contrary and upon any necessary federal approval, a health carrier may offer in the individual, small, and large group market a reference-based pricing health plan that meets the requirements of this section.


Journal of the House - 46th Day - Monday, April 26, 2021 - Top of Page 6789

Subd. 2.  Provider participation.  (a) An enrollee of a reference-based pricing health plan may access any health care provider who has agreed to (1) a reimbursement rate up to but not greater than the reimbursement rate specified in the enrollee's reference-based pricing plan as defined under this section, and (2) any other terms and conditions offered by the health carrier.  Any terms and conditions offered by the health carrier must be the same for all health care providers who agree to participate in the health plan.

 

(b) A health carrier may require a participating provider to meet reasonable data, utilization review, and quality assurance requirements.

 

(c) A provider who agrees to participate must provide services to all enrollees of the health plan if the provider's reimbursement rates are equal to or less than that specified in the enrollee's health plan.

 

Subd. 3.  Reimbursement rates.  (a) The reimbursement rates offered to providers who agree to participate in a reference-based pricing health plan must be based on a percentage relative to the rates defined by the most recent Medicare reimbursement schedules promulgated by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

 

(b) For services that do not have a corresponding Medicare reimbursement value, the health carrier must negotiate the rates based on other fee schedules used within the health care market.

 

(c) If a reference-based pricing health plan's reimbursement rate is at least 120 percent above the Medicare rate and the health plan is offered in all counties throughout Minnesota, the health plan is exempt from the geographic and network adequacy requirements under section 62K.10.

 

(d) A provider who agrees to participate in the health plan agrees to accept the reimbursement rate as payment in full under the terms of the health plan in accordance with section 62K.11.

"Sec. 28.  Minnesota Statutes 2020, section 256B.0625, subdivision 17, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 17.  Transportation costs.  (a) "Nonemergency medical transportation service" means motor vehicle transportation provided by a public or private person that serves Minnesota health care program beneficiaries who do not require emergency ambulance service, as defined in section 144E.001, subdivision 3, to obtain covered medical services.


Journal of the House - 46th Day - Monday, April 26, 2021 - Top of Page 6796

(b) Medical assistance covers medical transportation costs incurred solely for obtaining emergency medical care or transportation costs incurred by eligible persons in obtaining emergency or nonemergency medical care when paid directly to an ambulance company, nonemergency medical transportation company, or other recognized providers of transportation services.  Medical transportation must be provided by:

 

(1) nonemergency medical transportation providers who meet the requirements of this subdivision;

 

(2) ambulances, as defined in section 144E.001, subdivision 2;

 

(3) taxicabs that meet the requirements of this subdivision;

 

(4) public transit, as defined in section 174.22, subdivision 7; or

 

(5) not-for-hire vehicles, including volunteer drivers.

 

(c) Medical assistance covers nonemergency medical transportation provided by nonemergency medical transportation providers enrolled in the Minnesota health care programs.  All nonemergency medical transportation providers must comply with the operating standards for special transportation service as defined in sections 174.29 to 174.30 and Minnesota Rules, chapter 8840, and all drivers must be individually enrolled with the commissioner and reported on the claim as the individual who provided the service.  All nonemergency medical transportation providers shall bill for nonemergency medical transportation services in accordance with Minnesota health care programs criteria.  Publicly operated transit systems, volunteers, and not-for-hire vehicles are exempt from the requirements outlined in this paragraph.

 

(d) An organization may be terminated, denied, or suspended from enrollment if:

 

(1) the provider has not initiated background studies on the individuals specified in section 174.30, subdivision 10, paragraph (a), clauses (1) to (3); or

 

(2) the provider has initiated background studies on the individuals specified in section 174.30, subdivision 10, paragraph (a), clauses (1) to (3), and:

 

(i) the commissioner has sent the provider a notice that the individual has been disqualified under section 245C.14; and

 

(ii) the individual has not received a disqualification set-aside specific to the special transportation services provider under sections 245C.22 and 245C.23.

 

(e) The administrative agency of nonemergency medical transportation must:

 

(1) adhere to the policies defined by the commissioner in consultation with the Nonemergency Medical Transportation Advisory Committee;

 

(2) pay nonemergency medical transportation providers for services provided to Minnesota health care programs beneficiaries to obtain covered medical services;

 

(3) provide data monthly to the commissioner on appeals, complaints, no-shows, canceled trips, and number of trips by mode; and

 

(4) by July 1, 2016, in accordance with subdivision 18e, utilize a web-based single administrative structure assessment tool that meets the technical requirements established by the commissioner, reconciles trip information with claims being submitted by providers, and ensures prompt payment for nonemergency medical transportation services.


Journal of the House - 46th Day - Monday, April 26, 2021 - Top of Page 6797

(f) Until the commissioner implements the single administrative structure and delivery system under subdivision 18e, clients shall obtain their level-of-service certificate from the commissioner or an entity approved by the commissioner that does not dispatch rides for clients using modes of transportation under paragraph (i), clauses (4), (5), (6), and (7).

 

(g) The commissioner may use an order by the recipient's attending physician, advanced practice registered nurse, or a medical or mental health professional to certify that the recipient requires nonemergency medical transportation services.  Nonemergency medical transportation providers shall perform driver-assisted services for eligible individuals, when appropriate.  Driver-assisted service includes passenger pickup at and return to the individual's residence or place of business, assistance with admittance of the individual to the medical facility, and assistance in passenger securement or in securing of wheelchairs, child seats, or stretchers in the vehicle.

 

Nonemergency medical transportation providers must take clients to the health care provider using the most direct route, and must not exceed 30 miles for a trip to a primary care provider or 60 miles for a trip to a specialty care provider, unless the client receives authorization from the local agency.

 

Nonemergency medical transportation providers may not bill for separate base rates for the continuation of a trip beyond the original destination.  Nonemergency medical transportation providers must maintain trip logs, which include pickup and drop-off times, signed by the medical provider or client, whichever is deemed most appropriate, attesting to mileage traveled to obtain covered medical services.  Clients requesting client mileage reimbursement must sign the trip log attesting mileage traveled to obtain covered medical services.

 

(h) The administrative agency shall use the level of service process established by the commissioner in consultation with the Nonemergency Medical Transportation Advisory Committee to determine the client's most appropriate mode of transportation.  If public transit or a certified transportation provider is not available to provide the appropriate service mode for the client, the client may receive a onetime service upgrade.

 

(i) The covered modes of transportation are:

 

(1) client reimbursement, which includes client mileage reimbursement provided to clients who have their own transportation, or to family or an acquaintance who provides transportation to the client;

 

(2) volunteer transport, which includes transportation by volunteers using their own vehicle;

 

(3) unassisted transport, which includes transportation provided to a client by a taxicab or public transit.  If a taxicab or public transit is not available, the client can receive transportation from another nonemergency medical transportation provider;

 

(4) assisted transport, which includes transport provided to clients who require assistance by a nonemergency medical transportation provider;

 

(5) lift-equipped/ramp transport, which includes transport provided to a client who is dependent on a device and requires a nonemergency medical transportation provider with a vehicle containing a lift or ramp;

 

(6) protected transport, which includes transport provided to a client who has received a prescreening that has deemed other forms of transportation inappropriate and who requires a provider:  (i) with a protected vehicle that is not an ambulance or police car and has safety locks, a video recorder, and a transparent thermoplastic partition between the passenger and the vehicle driver; and (ii) who is certified as a protected transport provider; and

 

(7) stretcher transport, which includes transport for a client in a prone or supine position and requires a nonemergency medical transportation provider with a vehicle that can transport a client in a prone or supine position.


Journal of the House - 46th Day - Monday, April 26, 2021 - Top of Page 6798

(j) The local agency shall be the single administrative agency and shall administer and reimburse for modes defined in paragraph (i) according to paragraphs (m) and (n) when the commissioner has developed, made available, and funded the web-based single administrative structure, assessment tool, and level of need assessment under subdivision 18e.  The local agency's financial obligation is limited to funds provided by the state or federal government.

 

(k) The commissioner shall:

 

(1) in consultation with the Nonemergency Medical Transportation Advisory Committee, verify that the mode and use of nonemergency medical transportation is appropriate;

 

(2) verify that the client is going to an approved medical appointment; and

 

(3) investigate all complaints and appeals.

 

(l) The administrative agency shall pay for the services provided in this subdivision and seek reimbursement from the commissioner, if appropriate.  As vendors of medical care, local agencies are subject to the provisions in section 256B.041, the sanctions and monetary recovery actions in section 256B.064, and Minnesota Rules, parts 9505.2160 to 9505.2245.

 

(m) Payments for nonemergency medical transportation must be paid based on the client's assessed mode under paragraph (h), not the type of vehicle used to provide the service.  The medical assistance reimbursement rates for nonemergency medical transportation services that are payable by or on behalf of the commissioner for nonemergency medical transportation services are:

 

(1) $0.22 per mile for client reimbursement;

 

(2) up to 100 percent of the Internal Revenue Service business deduction rate for volunteer transport;

 

(3) equivalent to the standard fare for unassisted transport when provided by public transit, and $11 for the base rate and $1.30 per mile when provided by a nonemergency medical transportation provider;

 

(4) $13 for the base rate and $1.30 per mile for assisted transport;

 

(5) $18 for the base rate and $1.55 per mile for lift-equipped/ramp transport;

 

(6) $75 for the base rate and $2.40 per mile for protected transport; and

 

(7) $60 for the base rate and $2.40 per mile for stretcher transport, and $9 per trip for an additional attendant if deemed medically necessary.

 

(n) The base rate for nonemergency medical transportation services in areas defined under RUCA to be super rural outside of a metropolitan county is equal to 111.3 150 percent of the respective base rate in paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7) (3) to (5) .  The mileage rate for nonemergency medical transportation services in areas defined under RUCA to be rural or super rural areas is: outside of a metropolitan county is equal to 150 percent of the respective mileage rate in paragraph (m), clauses (3) to (5).  For purposes of this paragraph, "metropolitan county" has the meaning provided in section 473.121, subdivision 4.

 

(1) for a trip equal to 17 miles or less, equal to 125 percent of the respective mileage rate in paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7); and


Journal of the House - 46th Day - Monday, April 26, 2021 - Top of Page 6799

(2) for a trip between 18 and 50 miles, equal to 112.5 percent of the respective mileage rate in paragraph (m), clauses (1) to (7).

 

(o) For purposes of reimbursement rates for nonemergency medical transportation services under paragraphs (m) and (n), the zip code of the recipient's place of residence shall determine whether the urban, rural, or super rural reimbursement rate applies.

 

(p) For purposes of this subdivision, "rural urban commuting area" or "RUCA" means a census-tract based classification system under which a geographical area is determined to be urban, rural, or super rural.

 

(q) (o) The commissioner, when determining reimbursement rates for nonemergency medical transportation under paragraphs (m) and (n), shall exempt all modes of transportation listed under paragraph (i) from Minnesota Rules, part 9505.0445, item R, subitem (2)."
