22 Health Department Clinic Health – Revenues continue to drop for third straight year, (From $2.66 million to $2.175 million) a decrease of $484,560. Patient caseload has decreased by approximately 30%. County is providing an additional $343,981 in county tax dollars in the proposed budget with less patients expected. The Health Department may need to consider offering only what is required by State of NC in the budget.

23 Health Department 1. Dental Health – Due to additional county dollars required, the daily patient average dropping from 15 patients a day to 6 a day, and with the addition of 5 private dental offices now accepting Medicaid patients, the recommendation is to close the dental clinic effective 6/30/2014. Health Department requested an additional $143,749 in county tax dollars in their request for Dental services. That would require the County to provide a total of $220,837 county tax dollars to a program that was once self sustaining.

24 Health Department Home Health – The county is proposing an additional $142,394 in county tax dollars compared to the previous year’s budget. Home Health revenue is slightly down.
