3. Mental Health Services Rate Increase

Preview

Should the Board authorize a rate increase for the County's community mental health system of care services?  Based upon a recent fee study, staff recommends an increase in current rates so as to reflect the true costs of providing the services.  However, few clients will actually pay these new rates due to requirements that limit the fees clients are charged based upon income, family size, and other factors. 

The Board will conduct a formal hearing on the merits of the proposal.
