The Escambia County Board of County Commissioners will consider a letter of agreement with the Agency for Health Care Administration on behalf of Escambia Community Clinics at the Thursday, Nov. 9 Committee of the Whole meeting. The letter of agreement will allocate $351,365 in previously-approved funding to AHCA on behalf of ECC.
This is not a new funding request from ECC, but was already approved in the board's 2017-18 budget for outside agency funding. The item is coming back before the board to consider routing the $351,365 through AHCA, allowing ECC to leverage the money for matching funds from the state.
The funding will be used to increase the provision of health services for ECC through Low Income Pool Medicaid programs.
The board's vote at the Nov. 9 Committee of the Whole meeting will be ratified at the Thursday, Nov. 30 Regular BCC Meeting.
The Committee of the Whole meeting will begin at 9 a.m. in the board chambers of the Ernie Lee Magaha Government Building, located on the first floor of 221 Palafox Place.
