Routine sick call screening, including dental problems, will be held in the Health Services Department between 6:00 a.m. and 6:30a.m. weekdays (except for Wednesdays), with your ID card. Each inmate requesting an appointment will be issued an appointment slip. You must obtain a pass from your detail supervisor to report for your appointment. Emergency treatment is conducted on an as needed basis. Inmates will be charged a $2.00 co-pay for medical care initiated at their request, such as sick call or after hour requests to be seen that are deemed by the clinician to be non-emergency. No inmate will be denied care for lack of funds; however, the charge will be electronically attached to their commissary account and exists as a debit until they get funds. At that time the money is transferred to pay their just debt.
