BILL NUMBER: S2404 TITLE OF BILL : An act to amend the correction law, in relation to requiring inmates to make medical co-payments PURPOSE : To require inmates in New York State correctional facilities to make co-payments in the amount of seven dollars for medical treatment. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS : Adds a new section, 607, to the correction law to require co-payments for medical treatments to inmates in the amount of seven dollars. An inmate will NOT be refused treatment for lack of ability to pay co-payment charges. Each inmate will be required to sign a log at the time of visit. Each medical co-payment will then be posted to the inmates account and each inmate will receive an account statement at the end of each month. Inmates are not assessed charges for psychiatric visits. All money collected pursuant to this section will be made available for the operation of the facility. EXISTING LAW : Inmates currently receive taxpayer-funded medical treatment while in the custody of the Department of Correctional Services.
