Minnesota Lawmakers Vote More Funds, Higher Wages for Home Health

Minnesota’s state senate voted this week to increase home health spending by $80 million. 

According to a Duluth News Tribune report, the home health funds would come as part of a larger, $209-million add-on to the two-year, $39 million budget that was enacted last year and would be the area with the largest spending increase among the state’s programs. 

Minnesota’s house has approved a similar bill that includes more spending. 

Among the home health funding, payments to home health providers would increase under the plan, with 80% of the funding going to higher wages, according to sources quoted in the Duluth News Tribune report.
