County Oversight and Support Section
The County Oversight and Support Section (COSS) provides technical assistance and consultation to County Mental Health Plans (MHP).
COSS staff are assigned as liaisons to specific MHPs, acting as the primary point of contact, to facilitate communication between the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) and the MHPs to ensure compliance with Federal and State Medi-Cal requirements.
COSS responds to MHP only inquiries concerning:
- Departmental Policies
- Information Notices
- State and Federal Regulations
- MHP Contracts
This Section also monitors MHP Plan of Corrections (POCs) from Medi-Cal Triennial Reviews, External Quality Review Organization (EQRO) report recommendations, and provides information or resources to assist the MHPs in addressing the POCs and EQRO recommendations.
