1. If a community mental health center, mental health clinic, or any comprehensive mental health service is supported by some participating counties, but not by all the counties within the service area, then the center or clinic shall charge the nonparticipating counties for services rendered to persons not able to pay who are residents of such nonparticipating counties.

2. The amounts to be charged to the counties not participating shall be the same proportion of the actual per capita inpatient costs or actual outpatient costs for examination or other service costs as the proportion borne by the participating counties of the actual expenses of providing the comprehensive mental health service rendered to each person not able to pay who is a resident of a county not participating.

3. For the purpose of this section, the county of residence shall be determined as follows:

(1) If an individual is receiving a service that includes nighttime sleeping accommodations, his county of residence shall be that county in which the individual maintains his primary place of residence at the time he entered the community mental health center, mental health clinic, or other comprehensive mental health service;

(2) If an individual is receiving a service that does not include nighttime sleeping accommodations, his county of residence shall be that county in which the individual maintains his primary place of residence.
