Proposition 99 Contract Back Programs
This California Department of Public Health Program is no longer available .
When a small, rural county that is eligible to participate in the Rural Health Services Program declines Proposition 99 funding, those funds are then made available through two "contract back" programs administered by the County Health Services Branch. These programs reimburse hospitals and physicians for medical services provided to children and adults who do not have medical insurance or other forms of payment for the care they receive. Descriptions of the programs can be found below:
Children's Treatment Program (CTP) - CTP reimburses Medi-Cal and Denti-Cal enrolled providers for treatment of conditions detected through a Child Health and Disability Prevention health screening.
Emergency Medical Services Appropriation (EMSA) Contract Back Program - The EMSA Contract Back Program reimburses Medi-Cal physicians for uncompensated emergency services provided to medically indigent persons in qualifying counties.
