Inmates are financially responsible for all medications and medical or dental services provided to you, including medical or dental care sought from providers outside of the Jail.

If inmates request a medical consultation with the Jail’s Doctor, there is a co-payment of $10.00.  A co-payment of $5.00 is charged for a consultation with the Registered Nurse.

Medical appointments outside of the Jail must be approved by medical staff.  Inmates will be evaluated by the Jail Nurse before permission is granted for an "outside" medical appointment.  Appointments must receive prior approval, and must not be set up without it.
