PROGRAM DIRECTOR'S REPORT
Dr. Musunuru explained that it is becoming increasingly difficult to get reimbursement for services. If a patient is re-admitted to the hospital within one month of a previous stay and receives the same diagnosis, payment can be refused. As the county facility, we are obligated to provide services. The October 2017 statistical reports for mental health, AODA, and Birth to Three services were reviewed. Under Mental Health, members discussed Trempealeau County Health Care Center (TCHCC) and how they take our most difficult clients. Other facilities or group homes are often tried, but some clients end up back at TCHCC.
Motion by D. Will, second by M.J. Nicholson and carried, to approve the Program Director’s report.
MENTAL HEALTH/AODA ADVISORY COMMITTEE REPORT
Motion by M.J. Nicholson, second by G. Bonlander and carried, to approve the minutes from the 10/23/17 Mental Health/AODA Advisory Committees Report as written.
