Provide brief budget explanation.



Background

When no local contingency for TB physician, clinical, nurse case management and field services

for Union County residents was developed before DHSS funding was no longer available to

support a local contingency, these services were consolidated into the University Hospital -

Lattimore Practice in July 2005. It was agreed that DHSS would sustain all costs related to the

care of these residents with the exception of the current costs of salary and benefits for the

Lattimore Union County Nurse Case Manager. The total costs were $118,189 at that time.

DHSS committed to assuring these costs did not increase for local health officers in Union

County for three years, ending June 30, 2008. At that time and annually thereafter, the costs will

be adjusted to be equivalent to the current cost of salaries and benefits for this position.

For each year of this consolidation, DHSS and the NJMS Global Tuberculosis Institute @

Rutgers Biomedical Health Sciences collected utilization data on residents of Union County

accessing services at the - Lattimore Practice (NJMS Global Tuberculosis Institute). This data

was used to assist each local health officer in Union County to determine his or her jurisdictions'

estimated share of the costs for this nurse case manager in subsequent years.

Cost Basis for Quarterly Invoices

Beginning in calendar year 2010, each municipality will be assessed a fixed fee, based on

previous 3 years utilization, that will be invoiced quarterly. The assessments were calculated

based on the following agreed terms:

1) Union County Freeholders will pay for 20% of the cost of services

2) Each municipality would be assessed a minimum base fee of $1,000

3) Municipalities utilizing services in excess of $1,000 will assessed proportionate to their use
