Policy Brief: AB 3632 Update, June 2011

The AB 3632 mandate on county mental health (CMH) departments was originally passed in 1984, but in the fall of 2010, the state suspended this requirement. Governor Brown’s May Revision of the state budget bill proposes a permanent elimination of the mandate, releasing CMH departments from responsibility for providing services to special education students in order to benefit from their IEPs. This brief discusses the role that LEA Billing and School-Based Medicaid programs may play, including limitations, in helping to fund this new responsibility.
