In July 2021, changes to the mandatory reporting laws in Minnesota took effect in an effort to improve access to prenatal care for people at risk of substance use. As of July 2021, provider in health care and social services who are actively caring for pregnant people are not required to report the use of controlled substances. This change has caused a lot of confusion in the medical community.
If you would like to hear about how this change has been operationalized in some settings or have questions about this change, the December 13 Hennepin Healthcare ECHO session about Perinatal Substance Use will focus on this topic. The discussion will be led by Drs Cresta Jones and Katie Thorsness and is co-sponsored by Hennepin Healthcare, MN Medical Association, Hennepin Health, and the Medicaid health plans Healthy Start PIP Collaborative.
