Realizing the Potential of National Health Care Reform to Reduce Criminal Justice Expenditures and Recidivism Among Jail Populations (COCHS Paper)

Paper presented at a conference of Community Oriented Correctional Health Services (COCHS) in 2011. The goal of the conference was to bring attention to potential opportunities that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) may create for communities to better serve the physical and behavioral health care needs of childless adults who will be newly eligible for Medicaid in 2014, and to the planning processes that will occur by policymakers in criminal justice, public health, substance use treatment, and government.

The paper was authored by Maureen McDonnell, Laura Brookes, Authur Lurigio, Daphne Baille, with Pamela Rodriguez, Peter Palanca, Melody Heaps and Seth Eisenberg at CHJ.
