08 OHIP/ADM-3: Maintaining Medicaid Eligibility for Incarcerated Individuals

This Administrative Directive (ADM) advises social services districts of the provisions of Chapter 355 of the Laws of 2007 regarding maintaining Medicaid eligibility for inmates. Section 366 of the Social Services Law was amended by adding a new subdivision (1-a) which requires that State and local correctional facility inmates in receipt of Medicaid immediately prior to incarceration shall have their Medicaid eligibility maintained. Upon release from such facility, the former inmate shall have their Medicaid coverage reinstated.
