Brown County 2014 Detox Contract 23 Oct 13

The Brown County Board on Tuesday approved the 2014 contract with the Brown County Evaluation Center for detox services. The Center’s total budget for next year is around $870,000, of which Brown County will pay around $110,000. The new contract includes a 4% increase in daily per diem costs, but Brown County will receive a 2% discount on bills paid within 30-days, which brings the daily cost to $75 for the county for patients without insurance. A total of 969 patients have been admitted to the evaluation center so far this year, compared to 1,008 as of this point in 2012.
