Minn. providers could see some relief

MINNEAPOLIS – The state legislature on May 24 released the language of a Department of Human Services omnibus bill that includes a repeal of the preferred incontinence product program, MAMES has reported. In August 2018, the state tabled its plans to create the program after stakeholders obtained a temporary restraining order delaying its implementation. MAMES is still analyzing the bill, which includes a couple of other DME-related updates, and is waiting to hear back from DHS on possible “clawbacks” related to the 21st Century Cures Act.
