FY 2013 Budget Analysis: Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities

 

The governor’s FY 2013 budget recommendations increase state General Funds to the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities (DBHDD) by $45.3 million (5.1 percent) compared to FY 2012. The bulk of this increase funds the continued implementation of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Settlement Agreement reached in 2010. In addition to addressing the DOJ Settlement, the FY 2013 budget increases funding for forensic services, increased employer contributions for state employee health and retirement costs, and to reflect a lower federal Medicaid matching rate in FY 2013.
