CA Welf & Inst Code Section 14087.39


In any transfer of functions from county employees to a health authority established pursuant to Section 14087.35, 14087.36, or 14087.38, the health authority shall continue to recognize the employee organization that represented the employees performing those functions at the time of the transfer of duties.


Any health authority to which this section applies shall be bound by the terms of any memorandum of understanding that is in effect as of the date of the transfer of functions for the duration of the transfer of functions, or until replaced by a subsequent memorandum of understanding between the health authority and the employee organization.


Subdivision (b) shall not apply to administrative functions performed by the authority that are directly related to the operation of a health care service plan licensed under Chapter 2.2 (commencing with Section 1340) of Division 3 of the Health and Safety Code, unless the functions were transferred from county employees to the authority.


In order to further the statewide interest in the development of an effective managed care delivery system to Medi-Cal beneficiaries in the county, it is necessary to ensure that the public health and hospital facilities of the county are financially viable so that the county may participate in that delivery system through the use of those facilities. Accordingly, notwithstanding any provision of the county charter to the contrary, the county shall be fully authorized to offer and provide medical care to members of the health service system of the county at the public health and hospital facilities of the county.
