Regardless of the funding source involved, a county may charge fees to individuals who are not Medi-Cal beneficiaries and Medi-Cal beneficiaries who have a share of cost that has not been met, in accordance with their ability to pay for community mental health services rendered, but not in excess of actual costs in accordance with Section 14708.
