1. The state shall pay for one hundred percent of the nonfederal share of the services paid for under any prepaid mental health services plan for medical assistance implemented by the department as authorized by law.
2. The county of legal settlement shall pay for fifty percent of the nonfederal share of the cost of case management provided to adults, day treatment, and partial hospitalization provided under the medical assistance program for persons with mental retardation, a developmental disability, or chronic mental illness. For purposes of this section, persons with mental disorders resulting from Alzheimer's disease or substance abuse shall not be considered chronically mentally ill. To the maximum extent allowed under federal law and regulations, the department shall consult with and inform a county of legal settlement's single entry point process, as defined in section 331.440, regarding the necessity for and the provision of any service for which the county is required to provide reimbursement under this subsection.
3. To the maximum extent allowed under federal law and regulations, a person with mental illness or mental retardation shall not be eligible for any service which is funded in whole or in part by a county share of the nonfederal portion of medical assistance funds unless the person is referred through the single entry point process, as defined in section 331.440. However, to the extent federal law allows referral of a medical assistance recipient to a service without approval of the single entry point process, the county of legal settlement shall be billed for the nonfederal share of costs for any adult person for whom the county would otherwise be responsible.
