Body
DISCUSSION / BACKGROUND
Pursuant to California Penal Code Section 4011 and California Code of Regulations Title 15, the County is responsible for the provision of health care for detained adults and children. These services have been provided via contract(s) with CFMG since 2005 when Public Health determined that the provision of medical care to the facilities on both slopes was better provided, and more cost effective, using a vendor who specialized in these services.

This agreement continues to allow CFMG to provide medical services to our inmates/wards. Updates to the agreement include the addition of increased hours for a Licensed Clinical Social Worker or Marriage Family Therapist. Additionally, language was clarified related to the Medi-Cal County Inmate Eligibility Program. A few other minor changes include the definitions and the determination process, and better clarification of notification procedures.
