Body

 

Background Information:

The PCHP provides primary care, behavioral health, and specialty care services, including hospital procedures, for uninsured adults ages 18-64 who are in need of healthcare, but meet certain income level criteria and cannot afford care on their own.  The goal of the PCHP program is to prevent, diagnose, and/or treat medical and behavioral health concerns before they become an urgent matter.  Under this agreement, Advent, BayCare, and Bayfront, and will coordinate with the PCHP to provide ambulatory surgical center outpatient procedures and services, inpatient procedures and services, and patient rehabilitative services.

The total funding available across hospital agreements is $3,000,000.00.  Based on reported service level data received, the Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 breakdown is as follows:  Advent receiving 2.4%, BayCare receiving 72.4%, and Bayfront receiving 25.2% of the funding allocation.

Human Services (HS) continues to partner with participating hospitals to implement effective policies and procedures for clients.  Quarterly hospital coordination meetings are held to identify gaps and needs, and to explore opportunities for additional cost savings and care coordination.  From these meetings, partners have worked to enhance eligibility screening processes with the hospitals, improve discharge planning coordination with the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas (DOH), and identify high use emergency room clients to look for trends and treatment needs.  HS will continue to facilitate quarterly meetings with our partners in FY2022 to further the progress on these efforts.

 

Fiscal Impact:

Funding in the amount of $3,000,000.00 to support these agreements is consistent with the FY22 Proposed Budget. Not-to-exceed contract amounts are distributed on a reimbursement basis as follows: Advent: $72,000.00, BayCare: $2,172,000.00 and Bayfront:  $756,000.00.
