Sec. § 534.066
Local Match Requirement


The department shall include in a contract with a local mental health authority a requirement that some or all of the state funds the authority receives be matched by local support in an amount or proportion jointly agreed to by the department and the authority’s board of trustees and based on the authority’s financial capability and its overall commitment to other mental health programs, as appropriate.


Patient fee income, third-party insurance income, services and facilities contributed by the local mental health authority, contributions by a county or municipality, and other locally generated contributions, including local tax funds, may be counted when calculating the local support for a local mental health authority. The department may disallow or reduce the value of services claimed as support.
