If the program manager determines it is appropriate for the welfare of a client, the client may be placed for temporary care and treatment in any public or private hospital, institution or residence in the state which provides services which will benefit the client. The transfer shall not be made without the consent of the client and his parents or guardian, or in the case of an involuntary client, without leave of the court, except in cases of medical emergency. During and after the transfer, the client remains a client of the center. The cost of the transfer and of the temporary treatment, care and training provided shall be borne by the center. This section does not limit the responsibility of third parties to pay for medical and other expenses incurred by contract or law.
