PA Streamlines Medicaid Application Process for Individuals Released From Prison

The Pennsylvania Department of Corrections and the state’s Department of Human Services have developed a new process to simplify the Medicaid application process for individuals newly released from state prisons.

Under the new process, Medicaid application will be automated for those leaving prison who consent to participate in the application process.  This process will ensure Medicaid eligibility immediately upon release from prison for about 2000 individuals a year.

Learn more about this process from this joint news release from the two departments.
