Summary: Approve increase of contract amount between Mt. Diablo Unified School District (MDUSD) and Paradigm HealthCare Services, Inc. for the 2012-2013 school year.

MDUSD has a contract with Paradigm HealthCare Services, Inc. to prepare and submit Medi-Cal claims to the California Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) for the reimbursement of health care services provided by MDUSD as a Local Education Agency(LEA). The cost of their services is calculated monthly by taking the approved Medi-Cal reimbursements and adjustments for the month and multiplying the amount by 11%. The monthly invoices are paid against the incoming revenue from Medi-Cal reimbursements; therefore, the costs of these services are cost neutral.

The Board approved the contract on October 26, 2010 in the amount of $122,000 for the period July 1, 2010 until June 30, 2013. The contract was increased to $50,000 and has covered the expensed up until November 2012. Staff requests an additional $46,000 cover the remaining costs for the 2012-2013 school year. This will bring the total Paradigm contract to $218,000.
Funding: Medi-cal (California's Medicaid Program), Program Code 3091
Fiscal Impact No impact to the general fund.
Recommendation: Approve increase in contract amount as presented.
