Pre-release Medicaid Enrollement Program Evaluation
On Janaury 1, 2017, the Louisiana Department of Corrections and Louisiana Department of Health initiated the Pre-release Medicaid Enrollment Program (Program). This Program aims to enroll people in Medicaid who are approaching release from prison and to provide individual case management to members designated as having high health care need.
After the Program's second year, LDH requested a qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the Pre-release Medicaid Enrollment Program. The primary goal of this evaluation is to assess and describe the effects of the Program on Medicaid enrollment for people re-entering society and identify potential areas for Program improvement.
This evaluation concluded December 2019.
