RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
The Administration and Support Program is funded with interagency transfers and fees and self-generated revenue. Interagency transfers include Title XIX reimbursement for services provided to Medicaid eligible patients, and reimbursements from the Office of Substance Abuse, Dixon Correctional Institute, Feliciana Forensic Facility, State Department of Veteran's Affairs, Villa Feliciana Geriatric Hospital and Vocational Rehabilitation for space occupied and services received. Self-generated revenue represents reimbursement for ineligible patients with insurance or personal payments based on a sliding fee scale, reimbursement for the cost of housing and telephone supplied to employees, utilities and supplies utilized by Jackson Regional Laundry and meals served to employees and visitors.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 95.9% of the existing operating budget. It represents 84.9% of the total request ($9,766,747) for this program. The major changes reflected in this analysis include: reducing $46,129 of interagency transfers for risk management premiums; a decrease of $137,000 of Interim Emergency Board funds; a reduction of $27,294 of federal funds for non-recurring acquisitions and major repairs; personnel reductions; and the transfer of the Baton Rouge Alcohol and Drug Abuse Unit from the East Louisiana State Hospital campus to the Capital Area Human Services District. The changes should have no impact on the delivery of these services.
