RESOURCE ALLOCATION FOR THE PROGRAM
SOURCE OF FUNDING
The Administration and Support Program is funded with general fund, interagency transfers and fees and self-generated revenues. Interagency transfers include Title XIX reimbursement for services provided to Medicaid eligible patients, and reimbursement from the Office of Community Services for the Spring House, and IAT from the Health Care Services Division - Earl K. Long Medical Center for the inpatient psychiatric acute unit and reimbursement from Vocational Rehabilitation. Self-generated revenue represents reimbursement for ineligible patients with insurance or personal payments based on a sliding fee scale and meals served to employees and visitors.
ANALYSIS OF RECOMMENDATION
The total means of financing for this program is recommended at 110.5% of the existing operating budget. It represents 79.9% of the total request ($3,773,707) for this program. The major changes reflected in this analysis include: a transfer of $420,617 of interagency transfers from Community to Mental Health to replace operating services funds taken in FY 96/97 on the basis that risk management premiums would be reduced; reduce interagency transfers by $69,214 for a decrease in risk management premiums; substitute $146,699 of interagency transfers for self-generated revenue to reflect an estimated decrease in self-paying patient revenue. The changes should have no significant impact on the delivery of these services.
