Funding Requirements

Payment & Difficult of Care Rating

Traditional providers receive a monthly minimum room and board payment set by the State. A Difficult of Care (DOC) rating may be set based on the required level of care. The payment is usually a combination of the client’s pension, Social Security income, Social Security Disability, and Group Residential Housing (GRH) funds. Residents who have the financial resources to pay can negotiate a fee with the provider.

Request for Proposal

Corporate providers must first respond to a Request for a Proposal and go through the county selection process. If selected, a representative of the corporation must meet with a county contract manager to negotiate a contract.

Provider Enrollment Application

All providers delivering services to enrollees of MN Health Care Programs (MHCP) must complete an Enrollment Application form and a Provider Agreement form. A provider number must be assigned in order for the provider to be able to submit a claim for payment for Adult Foster Care services provided to clients on the Elderly Waiver, CADI Waiver, TBI Waiver, or MR / RC Waiver.
