The Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Richland County held it's monthly board meeting Tuesday evening. Items on the agenda included planning and preparation for 2014.

One of the big changes will come with the Medicaid expansion. The board wants to be sure they can properly assist the people in our area who desperately need their help. Executive Director, Joe Trolian explains..

"We're getting ready to move forward, starting fiscal year 2015. We've had Medicaid expansion, and then with the Affordable Care Act and the Health Insurance Exchange. Now, we're looking at those who are at 130% to 200% below the poverty line. We want to make sure that we're still assisting that population to receive services. But it's basically entailing a re-sculpting of the Board Subsidized system. It's a system that has been in place for 14 years and frankly, needs and overhaul. "

They hope to have the planning process done by the end of February. They'll take another few months to put the mechanics in place, and hope to hit the ground running July 1st.
