Body
DEPARTMENT RECOMMENDATION
Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) recommends the County of El Dorado Board of Supervisors approve and authorize the Chair to sign Amendment 4 to Agreement for Services 025-S1310 with Tahoe Turning Point, Inc. Through a California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) funding agreement, HHSA is mandated to make substance abuse treatment services available to Medi-Cal beneficiaries through the utilization of Federal and State funds available pursuant to Title XIX and Title XXI of the Social Security Act. The County has neither the facilities nor the staff available to meet the service requirements. Failure to contract with community-based alcohol and drug treatment providers would result in an inability to meet the service demands of the community, as well as an inability to provide the service levels mandated by the funding agreement. HHSA recommends approval of Amendment 4 to allow continued provision of alcohol and drug counseling and treatment services for both existing and future clients.
