“We can’t just focus on what is happening in custody. We have to also make sure that we’re partnering with community partners to ensure that when people leave our custody, they have a continuity of services.”
Collaboration between Medicaid and the criminal legal system can improve health care outcomes and advance health equity for justice-involved populations. In this new episode of the Medicaid Leadership Exchange podcast, we’re exploring how coordinating reentry and support services with community partners can improve the lives of people impacted by the justice system, and potentially help reduce rates of recidivism.
This episode is hosted by Gretchen Hammer, MPH, principal, Public Leadership Group and consultant, National Association of Medicaid Directors (NAMD). She is joined by Autumn Boylan, Deputy Director, Office of Strategic Partnerships, California Department of Health Care Services; Tya M. Modeste, Lieutenant Public Information Officer, Alameda County Sheriff’s Office; and Mark Larson, Senior Vice President, Leadership and Capacity Building, Center for Health Care Strategies (CHCS).
