Mahoning County Mental Health Board approves $7.3M budget



Published: Thu, August 1, 2013 @ 4:52 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning County Mental Health Board adopted a fiscal year 2014 budget of $7.3 million, down about $3 million from last year almost entirely because of a change in the way Medicaid money is processed, board officials said.

Previously, the mental health board processed Medicaid claims for services received from mental health board-funded agencies.

As of this year, however, Medicaid claims are processed by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services, said Howard Merritt, director of finance for the mental health agency.

Medicaid, which provides health and medical services for certain individuals and families with low incomes, is primarily funded by the federal government, but because it flowed through the local mental health agency it had to be reflected in the agency’s budget as revenue and expenditures. That is no longer the case.
