In 2006, DHS began waiver reviews of the home and community-based services programs managed by Minnesota's county lead agencies. These reviews monitor compliance with state and federal waiver requirements. They improve the quality of services and identify successful practices that resulted in positive outcomes for HCBS consumers.
In 2008, follow-up reviews began to determine county lead agency compliance with corrective action plans and track local service improvement efforts. County lead agencies continue to be responsive to corrective actions.
Minnesota's assurances to the federal government regarding HCBS require county lead agencies to comply with corrective action plans.
This measure includes the percent of cases corrected after issuance of corrective actions.
This means corrective actions the county lead agencies take are effective in becoming compliant with requirements. These actions include:
Implementing new procedures and processes such as internal case file reviews and audits
Regional planning and collaboration
Using the state contract template.
The number of cases corrected divided by the total number of cases needing correction.
