Off-site services are extremely important for providing a community standard of care for our patients, but they can also be expensive. We’ll support your facility by prioritizing the delivery of primary care on-site, and only sending inmates off-site for care when it is necessary.
We ensure off-site care is necessary by sending requests through a prior authorization process. When the service is approved, CHP coordinates with correctional staff and the provider for security and transportation needs.
Our Account Management Team identifies which providers in the community are comfortable working with inmates. Whenever possible, we bring community providers on-site if they are willing to practice in a jail or prison setting.
