Building Bridges to Care for Justice Populations

Building Bridges to Care is the lead publication in our comprehensive Medicaid Policy Series. 

This brief and the others in the series are designed to help leaders maximize the opportunities of Medicaid expansion in order to more swiftly and effectively connect justice populations to healthcare services in the community.

Medicaid Policy Series: Building Bridges to Care
