| About Inmate Medical |
ACCG offers two tools to assist counties in controlling inmate medical costs.
Inmate Medical Service Program is a program in which bills that are submitted by health care providers are reduced to either the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia network rates, or to the applicable Medicaid rate. The result is significant savings to Georgia counties.
Catastrophic Inmate Protection is an insurance product that protects a county from large, costly medical claims made by inmates. In exchange for an insurance premium, and subject to a large deductible, the risks associated with large medical bills is transferred from the county to an insurer.
