RECOMMENDATION
Approve execution of an agreement with Correct Care Solutions for RFP No. 2993-15 Medical Services for Inmates at the Jail Facilities and residents at the Juvenile Center.
BACKGROUND
Medical services are provided at the Nueces County Jail Facilities (“Facilities”) and Nueces County Juvenile Justice Center (“NCJJC”). The RFP addressed the provision of ambulatory and infirmary medical services at the jail and ambulatory medical services at the Annex and the NCJJC areas using the Existing Medical Units (see Article IV. E. for the Facilities and Article V. E for NCJJC). This RFP does not include the provision of inpatient or outpatient healthcare services that cannot be reasonably provided within the Facilities or in the NCJJC. Such services are covered under a separate indigent healthcare agreement maintained by the Nueces County Hospital District (a separate governmental entity from Nueces County). The Proposer will be responsible for maintaining a liaison with and coordinating external inmate healthcare services with the Hospital District’s indigent health care contractor. The contract resulting from this RFP will be effective December 1, 2015 and have three (3) year initial period ending November 30, 2018. Proposer may request to renew or not to renew the original contract as amended from time to time, at the same terms, conditions, and pricing by giving six (6) months written notice of its intent before the term ends. Each renewal, if any, will be in one (1) year increments, not to exceed two (2) additional years past the initial term. This contract may be terminated by either party for any reason by giving six (6) months written notice of intent to terminate.
DISCUSSION
Court awarded for medical services for the Inmates at the Jail Facilities only. No medical services will be provided to the Juvenile Center. Services will be paid by the Nueces County Hospital District from their FY 2015-2016 Budget.
