The amounts allocated in accordance with Schedule A for the 1991–92 fiscal year shall be considered the base allocations for the 1992–93 fiscal year.

(2) The funds allocated pursuant to Schedule B shall be increased to reflect the addition of percentages for the institutions for mental disease allocation pursuant to paragraph (1) of subdivision (c).

(3) The Controller shall allocate three million seven hundred thousand dollars ($3,700,000) to the counties pursuant to a percentage schedule developed by the Director of Health Care Services as specified in subdivision (c) of Section 4095. The funds allocated pursuant to Schedule A shall be increased to reflect the addition of this schedule.

(4) (A) The State Department of Health Care Services may amend Schedule A in order to restore counties funds associated with multicounty regional programs.

(B) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the State Department of Health Care Services shall amend Schedule A for the purpose of establishing mental health base allocations for each county for the 1994–95 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter, in order to ensure that mental health base allocations for each county do not fall below 75 percent of the allocations for the 1989–90 fiscal year. The money specified in subdivision (c) of Section 17605.05 shall be used for this purpose.

(b) (1) Schedule B—State Hospital Payment Schedule.

From the amounts allocated in accordance with Schedule A, each county and city shall reimburse the Controller for reimbursement to the State Department of Mental Health, or its successor, the State Department of State Hospitals, for the 1991–92 fiscal year only, an amount equal to one-ninth of the amount identified in Schedule B as modified to reflect adjustments pursuant to paragraph (2) of subdivision (a) of Section 4330. The reimbursements shall be due the 24th day of each month and the first payment shall be due on October 24, 1991. During the 1992–93 fiscal year and fiscal years thereafter, each monthly reimbursement shall be one-twelfth of the total amount of the county’s contract with the State Department of Mental Health, or its successor, the State Department of State Hospitals, for state hospital services. If a county has not contracted with the State Department of State Hospitals by July 1 of any given fiscal year, each monthly reimbursement shall be an amount equal to one-twelfth the number of beds provided to the county the previous fiscal year multiplied by the current state rate as determined by the State Department of State Hospitals.

(a) The State Department of State Hospitals may request a loan from the General Fund in an amount that shall not exceed one hundred million dollars ($100,000,000) for the purposes of meeting cashflow needs in its state hospital operations due to delays in the receipt of reimbursements from counties.

(c) If a loan remains outstanding at the end of any fiscal year, the State Department of State Hospitals shall determine the amount of the loan attributable to a shortfall in payments by counties against the amount due in Schedule B in the 1991–92 fiscal year or the contract amount for beds purchased in each subsequent fiscal year. The State Department of State Hospitals shall determine any amounts due to counties pursuant to subdivision (d) of Section 4330. The State Department of State Hospitals shall invoice each county for any outstanding balance. Sixty days after an invoice has been provided and upon notice to the Controller by the State Department of State Hospitals, the Controller shall collect an amount from the county’s allocation to the mental health account of the local health and welfare trust fund that is sufficient to pay any outstanding balance of the invoice.

(b) All of the funds deposited in the CalWORKs Maintenance of Effort Subaccount pursuant to subdivision (a) shall be used by each county and city and county that receives an allocation of those funds to pay an increased county contribution toward the costs of CalWORKs grants. Each county’s total annual contribution pursuant to this section shall equal the total amount of funds deposited in the county’s CalWORKs Maintenance of Effort Subaccount during that fiscal year.

Each county’s contribution pursuant to this section shall be in addition to the share of cost required pursuant to Section 15200.

(c) There shall be a monthly allocation from the Mental Health Account in the Local Revenue Fund 2011 to the Mental Health Subaccount pursuant to subdivision (a) of Section 30027 of the Government Code.
