Health Homes for Justice Populations
The Affordable Care Act (ACA) offers states a Medicaid state plan option called “health homes." This concept can be particularly useful in preparing individuals with chronic conditions for reentry into the community. States can designate certain providers, or a team of providers, as the health home for Medicaid beneficiaries with qualifying chronic conditions.
