Key Provisions in the Affordable Care Act and How Community Corrections Can Increase Outreach and Enrollment

Key Provisions in the Affordable Care Act and How Community Corrections Can Increase Outreach and Enrollment is proudly presented to you by CEQ American Probation and Parole Association. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

There has been quite a bit of emphasis and movement in the justice system around getting individuals who are being released from jail or prison enrolled in Medicaid or private health insurance. To date, lesser work has been done around educating community supervision departments and their staff on their role in increasing and enhancing outreach and enrollment efforts to gain access to healthcare coverage for individuals on pretrial release, probation or parole—including access to Medicaid, where applicable, and private health insurance.


This course provides community corrections administrators, managers, and officers with a broad overview of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and its implications for individuals placed on community supervision. Specifically, by the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:



  • Discuss the benefits of access to adequate healthcare coverage for individuals on community supervision.

  • Describe the role that community corrections agencies and officers play in helping individuals on supervision access healthcare coverage.

  • Provide guidance to community corrections agencies and personnel –at the pretrial, probation, and reentry/parole phases—on practical ways they can promote, encourage, and facilitate enrollment of justice-involved individuals in healthcare insurance programs.

  • Identify strategies used by other agencies/states to improve outreach and enrollment in Medicaid for individuals on community supervision.
