Inmates at correctional facilities (inmates serving prison sentences, students, people subject to punishment, defendants, persons undergoing rehabilitation, and juvenile inmates) have been given NHI coverage since January 1, 2013. As inmates in correctional facilities have restricted freedom while incarcerated, the location and method which they receive medical care must be restricted. Inmates should first receive medical treatment at clinics within the correctional facility. If there is a need for transfer, inmates may undergo the process to seek medical care under security.
