(a) In June 2016 and for every fiscal year thereafter, for every county or city and county that selected the option pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) or paragraph (1) of subdivision (c) of Section 17600.50, the Director of Finance shall make a final determination of the amount of the allocation attributable to each county and city and county should have been pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 17603 for the penultimate fiscal year.

(b) The amount of the final determination amount for each county or city and county shall be subtracted from the amount attributable to each county or city and county that was actually transferred in the applicable fiscal year. This calculation shall be made at the same time as the final determination in subdivision (a).

(c) The Director of Finance shall promptly notify every affected county or city and county and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee of the determinations made pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b).

(d) If the difference calculated in subdivision (b) is negative, the state shall pay the applicable county or city and county, the difference and those funds shall be deposited in that county’s or city and county’s health account of the local health and welfare trust fund. Notwithstanding Section 13340 of the Government Code, there is hereby continuously appropriated to the Director of Finance the funds necessary to pay any amounts owed pursuant to this subdivision.

(e) If the difference determined in subdivision (b) is positive, the applicable county or city and county shall pay the difference to the family support account within the health and welfare trust fund of that county or city and county. If within three months of receipt of the determination made in subdivision (b), the county or city and county has failed to make the payment, then the Director of Finance shall provide a supplemental schedule to the Controller to have 1.5 times the amount of the determination transferred from the next Health Subaccount allocations of the applicable county or city and county to the Family Support Subaccount until 1.5 times the amount owed has been deposited in the family support account.

(f) Solely for the June 2016 final determination, the amount redirected pursuant to this article shall not exceed the amount determined for the county or city and county for the 2013–14 fiscal year under subdivision (c) of Section 17603, as that amount may have been reduced by the application of Section 17610.5.

This determination shall be based on the sharing ratios provided in Section 17600.50.

(b) The amount of the final determination amount for each county or city and county shall be subtracted from the amount attributable to each county or city and county that was actually transferred in the applicable fiscal year.

(c) At the same time the Director of Finance makes the determination in subdivision (a), the director shall adjust the schedules provided to the Controller pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 17603. Notwithstanding Section 17603, the Controller shall only adjust amounts payable by the County Medical Services Program in order to reconcile underpayment or overpayment made to the Family Support Subaccount by the County Medical Services Program and counties participating in the County Medical Services Program in the preceding fiscal year.

(d) The Director of Finance shall notify every affected county and the Joint Legislative Budget Committee of the determinations made pursuant to subdivisions (a) and (b).
