RECOMMENDATION(S):

APPROVE and AUTHORIZE the Health Services Director, or designee, to execute on behalf of the County Novation Contract #24-712-7 with Telecare Corporation, a corporation, in an amount not to exceed $2,204,053 to provide and manage services for Hope House, a sixteen (16) bed short-term residential facility, for adults with mental illness 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 $1,102,026.

FISCAL IMPACT:

This contract will result in budgeted expenditures of up to $2,204,053 and will be funded by 30% Federal Medi-Cal ($661,216) and 70% Mental Health Services Act ($1,542,837) revenues. (No rate increase)

BACKGROUND:

This contract meets the social needs of County’s population by providing a short-term crisis residential facility for adults, age eighteen (18) and older, who require support to avoid hospitalization or are being discharged from the hospital or long-term locked facilities and require step-down care to transition to community living.  
  
The County has contracted with Telecare Corporation since 2014 for short-term crisis facilities. Most

recently on November 5, 2019, the Board of Supervisors approved Contract #24-712-6 with Telecare Corporation, for the period from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020, with a six-month automatic extension through December 31, 2020 to provide and manage services at Hope House, a short-term crisis residential facility.  
  
Approval of Contract #24-712-7 will replace the automatic extension under the prior contract and allow the Contractor to continue providing services through June 30, 2021.  

CONSEQUENCE OF NEGATIVE ACTION:

If this contract is not approved, County clients in need of crisis residential or step-down care will not have access to the contractor’s services possibly resulting in higher levels of placement, including hospitalization.
