SUMMARY OF REQUEST:
Health and Human Services Agency (HHSA) Behavioral Health & Recovery Services (BHRS) is mandated to provide Specialty Mental Health clients with psychiatric assessments for treatment and medication management services. The County was unable to contract with sufficient providers in the area to match the estimated need for this service. Segal Telepsychiatry Network provides telepsychiatric video services, and started providing this service to Mendocino County BHRS clients on July 18, 2016. This Amendment adds $160,000 to the initial $50,000 Agreement in order to meet client needs and also provides additional documentation related to Medi-Cal charting requirements.

ALTERNATIVE ACTION/MOTION:
Return to staff for alternative handling.
