The State of Minnesota Health Professionals Services Program (HPSP) is a professionally staffed, confidential program designed to monitor the treatment and continuing care of eligible, regulated health professionals. Specifically, the program serves individuals who may be unable to practice with reasonable skill and safety if their illness is not appropriately managed. Treatment plan activities and practice limitations for physical, mental, or psychological conditions, including chemical abuse and/or dependence, will be monitored for compliance.
The program is not a professional support network, a treatment provider, nor an enforcement agency. For more information view the HPSP Website.
Regulated health professionals who cannot practice with reasonable skill and safety due to illness must report to the program or their board. Reporting to HPSP fulfills the reporting requirements related to illness as established in individual professional practice acts. Reports submitted in accordance with statute are confidential and are immune from civil liability. Participating boards may direct or refer regulated persons to HPSP.
To be eligible for the HPSP, a regulated health professional must be regulated by a participating board and must have the ability to practice with reasonable skill and safety when appropriate limitations and continuing care requirements are followed.
Admission to HPSP shall be denied to:
- inability to secure information necessary to develop a Participation Agreement and document compliance.
- failure to comply with Participation Agreement.
- indications that continued practice would create a serious risk of harm to the public.
