BACKGROUND INFO

This is a renewal agreement with the vendor to provide conservatorship evaluations and outpatient psychiatry services for mental health clients of all ages.  This contract provides critical services necessary for evaluating the status of conserved clients and provides additional contracted services that are required for meeting network adequacy numbers from the Department of Health Care Services.  If the agreement is not approved, clients in need of these services who are referred to the Department will not have the benefit of this location or programs to meet their needs.  The Department would need to look for a new vendor which could increase the costs to the Department and cause delays in finding the necessary services for individuals in need of these specialized Mental Health treatment services.
