Screening Eligibility for Medicaid Assistance even while Behind Bars
Some proponents of the expansion claim that the state and local governments may save more when people, especially newly-released prisoners, are insured for health practice visits instead of going to the ER, as had been the norm for years. A few studies noted, for example, that former inmates who visited the clinic periodically stood a 50% less chance of being sent to the ER than people who did not. As such, determining eligibility for Medicaid through companies like DECO will be essential to aid people in dire need of medical assistance.
