Providence Service Corporation Does Not Expect California Budget Issues to Materially Impact Its Business in the State
Date:7/7/2009

TUCSON, Ariz., July 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Providence Service Corporation (Nasdaq: PRSC) today commented on recent budget discussions in California as part of the state's attempt to close its large budget deficit.

"As we have stated previously, given that our programs in California are primarily funded by Medicaid and the Mental Health Services Act (Proposition 63 of 2004), we do not expect to experience material funding issues for our California book of business," said Fletcher McCusker, Chairman and CEO. "Also, any delay in payments from the state to our county payers should typically not impact our recognition of revenue for services we provided."

As previously reported, in May 2009, California voters rejected several of the Governor's budget propositions. Chief among these special election referendums was Proposition 1E, which would have amended the Mental Health Services Act to allow the Governor to redirect funds, for a two-year period, from mental health services for children and young adults. The Federal Court has also issued a permanent injunction preventing Medicaid cuts in the state.
