Background Discussion

On September 25, 2012, the Board of County Commissioners approved an Agreement with Armor Correctional Health Services, Inc., for necessary and proper medical, psychiatric, dental, and other health care services for persons in the care, custody, and control under the County.

As it relates to pharmaceuticals, the Agreement states:  County agrees to pay Armor on a reimbursement basis for documented actual pharmaceutical costs in excess of $450,000 per contract year.  This agreement includes an amount of $450,000 in the annual base price of the Agreement as an allocation for pharmaceutical costs.  If the $450,000 allocation is not fully spent during the contract year, Armor provides a credit to the County in the amount of the unspent balance.

To track and monitor expenses, Armor reports on a monthly basis with specific descriptions and corresponding dollars associated with pharmaceutical usages.

Actual total pharmaceutical cost for FY 2014/2015 is $552,790.53 which exceeded the anticipated pharmaceutical cost allocation of $450,000.00  necessitating pharmaceutical reimbursement to Armor in the amount of $102,790.53.
