CA Welf & Inst Code Section 14132.49


Upon federal approval of the state plan amendments made pursuant to Section 14021.7 for federal financial assistance, targeted case management, pursuant to subdivision (g) of Section 1396n of Title 42 of the United States Code, is covered as a benefit, subject to the availability of funding through the budget process, and subject to utilization controls, for pregnant and parenting adolescents and their children.


In administering subdivision (a), the department shall limit the targeted case management benefit to the amount of General Fund or other public moneys, and federal matching funds made available in the Budget Act or other legislation.


The department may redirect General Fund moneys for local assistance for existing adolescent family life programs to the extent necessary to provide state matching funds for implementation of subdivision (a). The amount which may be redirected shall not exceed the amount appropriated for local assistance for the Adolescent Family Life Program.


It is the intent of the Legislature that the additional federal matching funds made available by implementation of subdivision (a) be used to expand the Adolescent Family Life Program and not supplant General Fund or other public moneys or federal funds provided for pursuant to Titles V and XIX of the federal Social Security Act (Sec. 701 and following, and Sec. 1396 and following, respectively, of Title 42 of the United States Code).


Determinations to continue, expand, or terminate the program shall be based on all of the following:


The department’s assessment of the effect of Medi-Cal funding for services on the effectiveness of the Adolescent Family Life Program.


A determination of the amount of federal funds received for this service.


An assessment of the cost-effectiveness of the services to the General Fund.


An estimate of the amount of federal funds that could be received by expanding the project to all adolescent family programs statewide.


The department shall submit, not later than June 30, 1993, amendments to the state plan required to implement the amendments made to this section during the 1992 portion of the 1991–92 Regular Session for approval by the Secretary of Health and Human Services.
