          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 27, 2015


          Bill  
          Summary:  AB 97 would require the Case Management Information  
          and Payrolling System (CMIPS II) for the In-Home Supportive  
          Services (IHSS) program to be reprogrammed to enable managed  
          health care plans to pay a provider for additional services  
          authorized for IHSS recipients in participating counties of the  
          Coordinated Care Initiative (CCI), as specified.


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           One-time costs of $6 million ($3 million General Fund) for  
            reprogramming of CMIPS II and ongoing costs of $1 million  
            ($0.5 million General Fund).
           Potential increase in county administrative costs (Federal  
            Fund/General Fund) to enter data from two payroll systems into  
            the CMIPS II database in order to differentiate between  
            authorized hours for IHSS and by managed health care plans.

          Author  
          Amendments:  Clarify that IHSS service hours and managed care  
          health plan service hours are separate and distinct.
          Staff notes this amendment addresses the potential fiscal impact  
          associated with an increase in IHSS program costs for overtime  
          and related activities, to the extent issuing a single payroll  
          check to providers for both IHSS authorized hours and hours  
          authorized by managed health care plans triggers the  
          requirements related to overtime under the federal Fair Labor  
          Standards Act (FLSA).
