County of Colusa v. Douglas, C073624

Welfare and Institutions Code section 14053.1, under which the State of California, rather than its counties, pays for ancillary outpatient services for Medi-Cal eligible patients ages 21 to 64 in an "institution for mental diseases" (IMD), remains a valid law. The Department of Health Care Services 2009 Memorandum and the Department of Mental Health 2010 Letter contravene section 14053.1 and are therefore invalid, and the State is enjoined from applying them.
