This webinar explains and clarifies the issues related to allowable uses of federal Medicaid funds for incarcerated individuals, and provides an example of how corrections departments can leverage cost savings as a result. The discussion focuses on the challenges related to implementation and establishment of cross-agency collaboration, and the subsequent successes and cost savings that can be achieved. The content in this webinar is particularly applicable for state-level corrections and Medicaid officials, as well as policy-minded criminal justice stakeholders.
