Counties, providers told not to count METO settlement funds as resources
Settlement funds received by clients under an agreement on a class action related to treatment at Minnesota Extended Treatment Options (METO) will not count as resources for purposes of the clients’ eligibility for disability benefits or programs. The class action was filed on behalf of residents with developmental disabilities who were restrained or secluded at METO, a department-operated facility in Cambridge. More detailed information and copies of the court orders and judgment are in a provider update. DHS also sent information to county staff statewide including county directors, supervisors, attorneys, health care liaisons and financial workers.
