106 Roundtables

106 – A | As Juvenile Residential Populations Decline, How Do We Transform Services to Best Meet Their Needs?

106 – B | Use of Surrogates for Patients Who Lack Capacity to Provide Informed Consent

106 – C | Reducing Recidivism With Jail-Based Medication-Assisted Treatment

106 – D | Corrections and Medicaid: A Partnership to Improve Claims Processing, Purchasing Power, and Data Reporting

106 – A  Thanks to juvenile justice reform, the numbers of confined youth have been declining across the country in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic has reduced the numbers even more. But many of those youth living in the community are still legally under JJS authority – and many still have significant health and mental health needs. How do juvenile care providers reinvent services to ensure these youth get the care they need as seamlessly as possible?

Learning Objectives:
– Review trends in juvenile detention and confinement
– Examine health needs of youth under the legal authority of the juvenile justice system
– Explore ways to ensure continuity of care for these youth

Learning Objectives:
– Discuss the concept of medical capacity in incarcerated patients
– Describe issues related to informed consent from compromised patients
– Examine concerns with voluntary vs involuntary treatment for patients who cannot provide informed consent

106 – D  A state department of corrections partnered with a state Medicaid agency to leverage an existing health care claims processing system.

Learning Objectives:
– Describe how existing Medicaid technology was extended to a state prison health care population
– Summarize the model and how it could be replicated by other state departments of corrections.
