I am following up for my colleague Martiga who is handling another issue.

Here are the rate setting documents for 2015. Please note that we have three contracts: Families and Children (PAMP and MinnesotaCare), Seniors (MSHO and MSC+), and Special Needs Basic Care. They are similar but for different groups of people.

The contracts that result from this rate setting are posted at http://www.dhs.state.mn.us/main/dhs16_160040,

Let us know if you have any questions.
