A letter demanding the $2.14 million ..., 9 Jan 2010 [cached]
A letter demanding the $2.14 million payment was sent Wednesday night to Seabrook House from Raquel Jeffers, director of the Division of Addiction Services at the New Jersey Department of Human Services.
Jeffers on Thursday said the $2.14 million is urgently needed to pay for treatment for women with abuse problems.
"I think it will be difficult for us to find 30 beds in any location that doesn't need new construction," Jeffers said. "We're not likely to end up with 30 beds in any" existing locations.
The departments of Human Services and Children and Families together put up $4.2 million for the MatriArk facility at the center's campus here. The contribution was part of an overall $8.5 million construction bill.
Jeffers and Ellen Lovejoy, a Human Services spokeswoman, rejected a claim from Seabrook House that a change in state medical reimbursement rate funding was a legitimate factor in closing the Matri-Ark program.
Jeffers and Lovejoy confirmed the state learned of the Changes program during an unrelated inspection at another part of the Seabrook House campus late last year.
Jeffers and Lovejoy also said the state has been investigating "many and serious" deficiencies at the facility for some time.
Jeffers said Seabrook House faces no penalty over the unlicensed program, unless it kept operating. The director said the Changes clients were paying their own costs.
Jeffers and Lovejoy elaborated on the department's past responses about Seabrook House's funding situation for Matri-Ark.
"We discovered when we were doing a 360-degree contract review of all like facilities that this facility -- and actually one other -- had been receiving quite a lot more for the same service," Jeffers said. "So we equalized it.
"And certainly if he wasn't happy with the rate for the contract he could have sought another payer for those five beds besides closing the 49-bed facility," she added.
