Union County mental health faces massive state bill payments
Debt is about $900,000, supervisors want to balance funds by July 1, 2014
The reduction in state funding and a hope that the state would forgive state mental-health bills has left Union County mental-health services with about $900,000 in unpaid bills.
Central Point Coordinator (CPC) Director Lori Nosekable met with Union County Board of Supervisors Monday afternoon in an open meeting to discuss payment strategies and explain why the debt was allowed to accumulate.
Nosekable said a large number of Iowa counties stopped paying their state bills when the state changed the funding pattern for mental health, leaving CPC with a smaller budget. She added that members at the Department of Human Services told her there was a good possibility the state would forgive the debt.
