December 5th, Webinar on Mandated Implementation of Medicaid for Detained Youths

Mark your calendars and save the date for an upcoming webinar hosted by The Health and Reentry Project (HARP), in collaboration with the National Sheriffs’ Association, American Jail Association, and the National Association of Counties.


The webinar, “What Adult Jails Need to Know about Mandated Implementation of Medicaid for Detained Youths,” will be held on Tuesday, December 5th


In 2023 Congress passed a law that will require jails and prisons to provide certain health care-related services to youths upon re-entry under Medicaid. This law will directly affect adult jails because, depending on certain factors, the definition of “youth” can include some individuals through age 25. The law goes into effect January 1, 2025, so jails should begin preparing now. The law also gives states the option of using Medicaid to cover some youth who are pre-trial.  The goal of this webinar is to brief adult jail administrators on: 

o   the provisions of this new law, including who will receive services, timeframes for providing them, and types of services included

o   some of the implementation choices jail administrators will need to make in conjunction with state Medicaid agencies

o   what we don’t yet know (because specific federal guidance is still forthcoming), and

o   what jails can begin doing now to prepare.  


In addition, we'd like to hear from jail administrators questions or concerns they have that may need to be addressed by state and federal policymakers.
