Doctors Council Supports Continuum of Health Care for People Coming Home from Prisons and Jails

Join Doctors Council in supporting a continuum of health care for people coming home from prisons and jails. We’re asking lawmakers in Albany to allow limited use of Medicaid Pre-Release to cover certain health services during the last 30 days of incarceration for at-risk individuals as they transition back into the community. This change would support individuals with chronic conditions, especially histories of addiction and mental illness; improve public safety through reduced crime, re-arrest and re-incarceration, and support New York’s efforts to provide high-quality, comprehensive care to those needing it most.
