Health Coverage and Care for Reentering Men: What Difference Can It Make?

Publication Date

Many community-based organizations serving men coming out of the criminal justice system recognize that their clients have serious physical, mental, and behavioral health needs. They also recognize that the Affordable Care Act and the Medicaid expansion have created new opportunities for their clients to get access to affordable health care, however many organizations do not know what those opportunities are or how to connect their clients to them. Health Coverage and Care for Reentering Men is intended for community-based organizations serving justice-involved men to help them better understand the new opportunities offered under the Affordable Care Act, why it is important information for their clients, and how they can help their clients get connected to coverage and care.
