Signed into Law – Buck McAlpin April 10, 2012
Yesterday Governor Dayton signed into law our Community Paramedic legislation in Chapter 169.
So now we are the only state in the country to have the enabling language from last year and a payment model. Now what happens is the Department of Human services applies for a plan amendment for Medicaid to the Federal Government. The amendment will ask the feds for matching dollars to cover CP cost in Minnesota.
After session we will work with Dhs and the Mn council of health plans to develop a organized coding and billing system for CP.
