Webinar: 2019 Legislative Update

Webinar: 2019 Legislative Update
The 2019 Legislative session was a busy one for Care Providers of Minnesota lobbyists and unlike the 2018 session, bills effecting long-term care were passed and signed into law. The landmark Elder Care and Vulnerable Adult Protection Act of 2019, signed into law as Chapter 60 by the Governor on May 22, 2019, was the result of two years of hard work among senior care providers, state health officials, and advocates for seniors who found a way to compromise for the greater good.

Care Providers of Minnesota will again present a FREE, members-only Legislative Update webinar on Wednesday, June 19 at 10:00 AM summarizing the session.

The webinar will cover several key areas
  • Older adult protections
  • Assisted living licensure
  • Assisted living consumer bill of rights 
  • Electronic monitoring
  • Qualifications for assisted living directors/nursing facility administrators
  • Expansion of swing bed use 

Additional topics
  • New property rate system and funding for nursing facility moratorium exception projects
  • Changes to nursing facility consolidations and bed relocation policies
  • Incentive-based grants for Elderly Waiver Customized Living providers
