Interstate Medical Licensure Compact


In August 2015, the Prenatal Trisomy Awareness Act (MS 145.471) went into effect.  This law requires health care providers who order prenatal screening to provide expectant parents with helpful and accurate information if a screening test result is positive for trisomy 13, trisomy 18, or Down syndrome (trisomy 21).

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has the required information for each of these conditions available on its website, Diseases and Conditions Identified in Children (

When available, the Minnesota Board of Medical practice has included links to other resources that meet the law's requirements that may be used.  Information must be provided in a written format.  Hard copy, electronic or an alternative format is acceptable.

Since prenatal screening tests have different sensitivities, health care providers will need to clarify with the parent that screening is a first step and that a positive screen is not a diagnosis.
Minnesota Statute §214.074 requires that all new applicants for licensure must complete a fingerprint-based criminal background check.
