GENERAL GOVERNMENT –SOCIAL SERVICES – STAFFING REQUEST

 

DSS Director Jan Spencer presented a request from the Stokes County Social Services Board for consideration of all staff that had been eliminated from the Social Services Department.

 

Director Spencer explained the following priorities and the amount of County funding needed:

 

Running total of County $

 
POSITIONS NEEDED AT DSS                            Listed in order of priority

 

1.      

County $

$15,499

 
Adult Medicaid IMC III ($24,771 + fringe $6,226) (50% Federal/50% County)

Currently, there are (3) IMC IIs handling approximately 1700 cases.

Each worker has approximately 567 cases. These cases include long-term care cases, which, if an error is made, could cause Medicaid dollars to be misspent. A typical long-term care case could spend $3,000 per month in Federal, State, and county dollars. I am requesting an IMC III position, which could carry a reduced caseload and act as a lead worker.  A lead worker is needed to keep abreast of the changes in the Medicaid program and to provide training to both new and current employees. This would reduce the caseload from 567 to 483 cases per worker. A comparison of surrounding counties revealed an average caseload of 235 cases per worker.

 

2.      

County $

$34,084

 
Social Worker III (Children’s Services) ($27,864 + fringe $6,646)  (45% Federal, 1% State, 54% County) (Child Welfare is currently under Corrective Action)

Currently, the agency has (131) open child abuse/neglect cases.  Of these cases, (100) are open for investigation and (31) are open for case management (these are cases which have been substantiated for either abuse, neglect, or dependency). We have had difficulty keeping staff in these positions due to the ability of surrounding counties to pay higher wages.  Turnover rate since 7/02 is 50%. The retention incentive is helpful in some cases, especially those staff that have chosen to stay at DSS. The state standards for child welfare are as follows:

No more than 12 cases per investigator

No more than 12 cases per case manager

 

At this time, we have  (2) investigators, (2) case managers, and (1) Intake worker.  The caseload for investigators is (50) and the caseload for case managers is (16). The intake position has had to assist the investigators. This is very dangerous for the children of Stokes County!  I believe that (1) Social Worker III to do investigations will greatly impact this situation. Last year, this unit investigated 655 children alleged to be abused or neglected.

 

3.      

County $

$49,583

 
Family & Children’s Medicaid Worker (IMC III) ($24,771+ fringe $6,226)) (50% Federal/50% County). This area failed the July report card (see attached memo dated August 18, 2003). As a result, DSS is under a corrective action plan. I am asking for an IMC III to be a lead worker for this unit and to also carry a caseload. One worker was out on FML during June, July, & August. A lead worker can supervise, implement policy, and fill in when needed with managing caseloads. Current caseload size per worker:

 

                                                                Yadkin County                    430 cases

Davie                                      411 cases

Stokes                                   585 cases

 

Report Card for July ’03  (Passing is 85%) PT=processed timely

Type of case

           Stokes

Davie

Yadkin

MAF

66 cases/66% PT

60/100%

49/100%

MIC

30/80%

46/100%

48/97%

MPW

27/81%

16/100%

27/100%

Average PT

        76% PT

       100% PT

     99% PT

               

                  With an additional worker, the projected caseload would be: 522 cases.

 

4.       Program Integrity worker (IM Investigator II)($24,771+ fringe $6,226))(51% Federal, 49% County)

Since 12/02, this agency has been unable to process any of the  (107) fraud claims received. We average  (15) referrals per month.  DSS is required to operate a program for fraud prevention, detection, and investigation of overpayments in the Food Stamp Program and the Work First Program (10NCAC49B, Section .0608 & 7 CFR 273.18(a)) Since our cutbacks, DSS has been unable to process these claims as staff have been devoting their time to establishing eligibility for Food Stamp and Work First benefits. Stokes County retains a percentage of overpayments collected, which offsets the cost of PI staff. Since January 2003, DSS has received $15,145 in incentive payments.  See attached letter dated August 20,2003 re: monitoring of  EPICS (fraud) claims. See Fraud Collections FY ’02.

 

County $ $64,772

 
 

 

 


5.       Office Support III   ($18,100+fringe $5,321) (51% Federal, 3% State, 46% County)

This area has two people assigned to the telephone and reception area each day. We receive over 10,000 telephone calls per month and over 1,000 people come in per month. The other (3) Office Support workers are assigned to specific units. An additional worker is needed to be assigned to the file room and act as a fill-in when staff go to lunch, take vacation, and are out sick.  Files must be purged on regular intervals to make room for newer files. This person would also be able to assist the Accounting Tech III with the extra duties she has had to assume. We have had to pull the Human Resource Aide to do these duties, which in turn took her away from assisting the Foster Care Unit.

County $ $75,546

 
 

 

 

 


6.       Food Stamp Worker (IMC II)($22,902+ fringe $5,973)(50% Federal, 50% County)

This is our fastest growing caseload. There has been a 24% increase in this caseload since last year.  The current caseload is 1308 families. Each worker serves 436 families. With (4) workers, the caseload would be reduced to 327. Surrounding counties average 253 cases per worker.

County $ $89,984

 
 

 

 

 


7.       Social Work Supervisor III ($31,343+fringe $7,118)(48 % Federal, 4 % State, 48% County) Child Welfare

State requires that a SWS III supervise no more than (5) social workers. Before the reduction-in-force, DSS was meeting that standard.   Currently, the Child Welfare SWS III supervises (9) social workers. She is unable to work closely with these workers in the field, as she is needed in the office to review and assign reports, staff cases, etc. If we are granted the SWIII requested above, I am asking for this position so that we can comply with State standards. This will allow DSS to better train our child welfare workers, eventually improving our performance in this area. This will also help with retention, as social workers will feel better prepared to handle this tremendous responsibility.

County $ $108,445

 
 

 

 


8.       Accounting Tech II (1/2 time) ($10,587+ fringe $1,437) (51% Federal, 3% State, 46% County)

This position is needed to assist the Acct. Tech III. In order to maximize funding from the Federal and State governments, accurate accounts of program expenditures must be maintained. This worker will assist the Accounting Tech III.

 

County  $113,976

 
 

 

 

 


9.       Social Worker I Work First ($22,902+ fringe $5,793)(2% Federal, 1% State, 97% County MOE) This worker will provide services to those in need of employment and/or emergency services. The Work First Program has contributed to a 72% decrease in the number of money payment cases since 1995.  This worker will work closely with those residents who need support and assistance in becoming and staying employed.

County $ 141,810

 
 

 

 


10.    IM Supervisor I ($24,771 + fringe $6,226) (53% Federal, 2%State, 45% County). This person would supervise the Adult Medicaid Unit. Again, this is an area in which the county could be liable for large sums of payback should workers make errors. A supervisor could ensure compliance with state regulations, monitor accuracy, train new workers, and ensure that the unit runs efficiently.

County $155,759

 
 

 

 

 


11.    IMC II (Family & Children’s Medicaid) ($22,902 + fringe $5,793)(52% Federal, 2% State, 46% County)

This person would greatly impact the ability of this unit to serve to citizens of Stokes County timely.  The area has seen an 11% increase from last year at this time. This area is currently under corrective action and with inexperienced workers, it will take several months for this unit to be processing applications timely.

County $ 168,959

 
 

 

 

 


12.    IM Supervisor III ($28,979 + fringe $7,288) (53% Federal, 2% State, 45% County)

This person would supervise all the Income Maintenance Programs. These programs include Food Stamps, Medicaid, Low Income Energy Assistance, and Child Support. This position would be able to monitor the programs to ensure that taxpayer’s money was being utilized in the most efficient manner.

County $185,279

 
 

 

 

 

 


                Director Spencer noted that the County had recently received the July 2003 Report

Card which the agency failed by not being able to process at least 85% of the Medicaid applications within the 45- day time frame.  August Report Card will be available later this week. 

 

 

Commissioner Mabe moved to approve the motion to grant the 11.5 positions that was requested by Director Spencer which amounts to $185,279 County funding.

 

Commissioner Inman seconded the motion. 

 

Chairman McHugh noted the Board’s recent approval to reorganize DSS Staff by adding a Medicaid Income Maintenance Caseworker II, reclassifying (2) IM Caseworker II to IM Caseworker III to be a lead worker in Adult Medicaid and Family/Children’s

Medicaid. (Approved at the August 5th meeting)

 

DSS Spencer stated that the Social Services Board (which met after the Commissioner’s Meeting) denied the reorganization of the DSS Staff and requested additional staff due to the County receiving Hold Harmless Funding.

 

The motion to grant the 11.5 positions that was requested by Director Spencer which amounts to $185,279 County funding failed (2-3) with Chairman McHugh, Vice Chairman John Turpin, and Commissioner Joe Turpin voting against the motion.

 

 

GENERAL GOVERNMENT – HEALTH DEPARTMENT – PHN II – ACCESS II

 

Chairman McHugh presented a request from Health Director Steve Smith for an additional Public Health Nurse II position which would be for the Access II System (Case Manager).  This position which would enhance case management services for all

Medicaid patients in Stokes County would be totally funded by the Access II System.

 

Commissioner Joe Turpin moved to approve the additional Public Health Nurse II for the Access II System.  Commissioner Mabe seconded and the motion carried (4-1) with Commissioner Joe Turpin voting against the motion.

 

GENERAL GOVERNMENT – HEALTH DEPARTMENT – HOME HEALTH– INTERIM SUPERVISOR

 

Health Director Steve Smith requested the approval to increase PHN II Rebecca Warren’s salary to $39,500/annually.  Ms. Warren is serving as Interim Supervisor for Home Health due to absence of Home Health PHN Supervisor Kathy Amos-Minor who is

currently out on Family Medical Leave.  Director Smith stated there were lapsed salaries funding for the additional amount requested.

 

Commissioner Mabe moved to approve the $39,500/annually for Ms. Warren retroactive to the date that Ms. Warren assumed the Interim Supervisor position.

 

Commissioner Inman seconded and the motion carried unanimously.

 

GENERAL GOVERNMENT – SOCIAL SERVICES – HCCBG IN HOME AIDE

 

DSS Director Jan Spencer requested additional funding of $29,739 for HCCBG In Home Aide Program.  Director Spencer noted that due to the reduced funding from the requested $50,000 to $14,576, (8) eight clients currently being served by HCCBG in Home

Aide would be terminated in October. 

 

 

Commissioner Mabe noted that these services help keep clients from being placed in nursing homes which is much more expensive for the County’s share of the Medicaid program.

 

Chairman McHugh noted that HCCBG funding provides Home Delivered Meals to citizens of the County.   

 

Chairman McHugh, with full support of the Board, agreed to work with the Finance

 

Director to seek funding for requested $29,739 for HCCBG In Home Aide Program.

 

GENERAL GOVERNMENT – STOKES COUNTY TOURISM COUNCIL – APPOINTMENTS

 

Chairman McHugh entertained a motion to appoint Ron Simmons – Farmers’ CoOp-King and Tom New-Forest Games, Danbury to serve on the Stokes County Tourism Council.  Mr. Simmons and Mr. New were nominated at the August 25th meeting.

 

Vice Chairman John Turpin moved to appoint Ron Simmons – Farmers’ CoOp-King and Tom New-Forest Games, Danbury to serve on the Stokes County Tourism Council. 

 

Commissioner Joe Turpin seconded and the motion carried unanimously.

 

Chairman McHugh nominated Keith Robertson – Hemlock Golf Course-Walnut Cove to serve on the Stokes County Tourism Council.  Mr. Robertson can be considered at the September 22rd meeting.

                                                        

GENERAL GOVERNMENT – GOVERNING BODY – ALWAYS REMEMBER 9-11 DAY - RESOLUTION
