This is interesting, since this is one proposal that Dr. Stephen Hall recently discussed at the 1915(i) waiver meetings around the state of Kentucky.
Kentucky needs to divert funds from other systems such as the Dept. of Corrections and give back to our Community Mental Health systems. In other words, help these individuals receive care from qualified clinicians instead of jailers. This is not possible in Kentucky "without" legislative changes.
The section on page 2 could be helpful in amending the KRS 202(a).
