From Representative Tom Emmer:

“The R Street Institute applauds Congressman David Trone for introducing the Due Process Continuity of Care Act and focusing on fixing the Medicaid Inmate Exclusion Policy,” said Anthony Lamorena of the R St Institute. “His legislation will allow states to provide Medicaid coverage to pre-trial detainees, particularly those who have not been convicted of a crime or pleaded guilty. As 40 percent of jail inmates have a chronic illness, 44 percent have a mental illness and 63 percent suffer from substance misuse, this legislation is more important every day.”
