Incarceration

“For people discharged from prison, managing chronic illness is often a lower priority than finding housing, employment, and food.” Transitions Clinic Network: Challenges and Lessons In Primary Care For People Released From Prison. In this study, approximately 40% of those released from incarceration reported being uninsured, though some were eligible. A referral relationship with correctional agencies (prisons and parole and probation officers), as well as community service providers offers an opportunity to connect this population to medication access and a charitable pharmacy.
