RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #74-503-5 with Mental Health Systems, Inc., a non-profit corporation, in an amount not to exceed $2,136,653, to provide assisted outpatient treatment and assertive community treatment for eligible adults in Contra Costa County under the Mental Health Services Act (MHSA) for the period from July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2021, which includes a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2021, in an amount not to exceed $1,068,327.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $2,136,653 and will be funded by 19% Federal Medi-Cal ($405,964) and 81% MHSA ($1,730,689) revenues. (No rate increase)

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing MHSA Community Services and Supports Program, including providing community-based services, personal services coordination, medication support, crisis intervention, and other mental health services to eligible adult clients in Contra Costa County.




BACKGROUND: (CONT'D)

The County has contracted with Mental Health Systems, Inc. since 2015 for MHSA Community Services and Support Program services. Most recently on November 19, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Novation Contract #74-503-4 with Mental Health Systems, Inc., for the provision of mental health support services to adults in Contra Costa County for the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, which included a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020, for the provision of mental health support services to adults in Contra Costa County.

Approval of Novation Contract #74-503-5 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the contractor to continue providing mental health services through June 30, 2021.

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, there will be fewer services provided to eligible adult clients in Contra Costa County through the MHSA Community Services and Support Program.
