The ACA’s Impact on Corrections

New opportunities. New challenges. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) serves up both when it comes to correctional health care.

The changing landscape in the corrections world will also impact Medicaid health plans and commercial plans sold on State Health Insurance Exchanges.

HMA Principal Donna Strugar-Fritsch maps out what implementation of the ACA means for corrections and those who interact with prisons, jails and ex-offenders, as well as actions corrections officials should consider in this article published in the Fall 2012 issue of CorrectCare, the quarterly magazine of the National Commission on Correctional Health Care.
