Licensing for Home and Community-Based Services - 245D providers

The Department of Human Services (DHS) licenses certain Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS) provided to people with disabilities and those over age 65. Most of the services are funded under one of Minnesota’s Medicaid waiver programs. 

The HCBS standards under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 245D, are part of a larger HCBS Waiver Provider Standards initiative to improve the dignity, health, and independence of the people we serve. Lists below contain links to specific sections in the manual about each service. For a one-page overview, see this 245D license structure (PDF).

If you have further questions regarding the licensing standards of 245D services call our licensing help desk at 651-431-6624. The help desk is staffed Monday through Friday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

On March 13, 2020, Governor Tim Walz declared a peacetime emergency related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Licensing is establishing this webpage to provide counties, tribes, providers and members of the public with information specific to responding to the COVID-19 as it relates to DHS programs.
