Inmates at the jail are afforded the opportunity to see a jail doctor each week to discuss medical problems. The jail doctor can prescribe medications to the inmate.
Each visit costs the inmate a $4 doctor co-pay per visit, and every prescription has a $10 med co-pay. Inmates who are indigent still have the same right to see the doctor.
No inmate is ever skipped due to lack of funds.
Bringing Your Prescriptions
If you are sentenced to jail and you currently take medication please bring the prescription in the bottle from the pharmacy in which it was filled. It would be even better if you requested the pharmacy to "bubble pack" the meds you will need during your stay in jail. If you will be staying for any length of time, we will ask you to allow the jail doctor to obtain a copy of your medical records.
