CMS Approves First-in-Nation Justice-Involved Reentry Section 1115 Demonstration
CMS has approved California's Section 1115 demonstration to provide a targeted set of Medicaid services to youth and adults in state prisons, county jails, and youth correctional facilities for up to 90 days prior to release. By providing reentry services to Medicaid-enrolled individuals who are incarcerated California aims to build a bridge to community-based care.
