(This amendment provides $706,000 the second year from the general fund to purchase acute inpatient bed days in local psychiatric facilities. Local inpatient service funds are used by CSBs in a pool at the regional level to pay for acute care. This bed purchase funding is for individuals who do not have Medicaid funding nor any other payer including private insurance coverage. LIPOS is only for the truly medically indigent who are experience a psychiatric crisis and who must be in an inpatient bed for 5 to 10 days in order to receive the necessary treatment and preserve their safety and that of the community.)
