Michigan DOC: discharge planning starts early

Michigan DOC: discharge planning starts early

Aids Policy & Law 14(22): 9-9

The Michigan Department of Corrections' discharge planning system for released, HIV-positive inmates is described. Care is managed locally through community-based case managers, and patient education is an important part of the care process. As the release date nears, case managers help inmates complete the paperwork for Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid so there is no gap in benefits for income and medical care. Upon release, a 30-day supply of medications is provided along with copies of relevant medical records, HIV and sexually transmitted disease information, and an offer of free condoms. The program's success is attributed to being under the Department of Corrections rather than privatized.
