GCASA clinic payment sources

In 2008, GCASA produced 17,474 treatment units in its operations in Genesee and Orleans Counties.

Of these treatment units the payment sources were as follows:

51% were Medicaid
33% were self pay
17% were Third Party.

In 2008, 42 people in Genesee County who were self pay were identified as possibly being eligible for Medicaid. Of these 7 were lost to service, 21 were denied, and 14 enrolled in Medicaid. This is very significant because people who are in self pay bring in about $120.00 for Phase I treatment, and people with Medicaid bring in $1547.00 for the same services. Therefore, the Treatment Program gained 19,978.00 by getting these clients enrolled in Medicaid.
