With dwindling federal support for local and state criminal justice programs and the prospects for another huge budget deal within the next two months that could further reduce entitlement and discretionary spending, local and state law enforcement agencies will need to explore further cost saving means to effectively match resources with their strategic plans. In addition, the implementation of the Affordable Care Act will create challenges and opportunities as well for active and retired criminal justice employees and the prison population that they care for in their respective states and jurisdictions.
This webinar is intended to brief the local and state law enforcement community on the latest developments with the 2013 federal budget, the impact on key justice programs, major aspects of the Affordable Care Act to consider (Exchanges, Essential Health Benefits, Employer Mandates, Wellness Programs for employees), and the potential for cost savings currently under the Medicaid program and the 2014 expansion of Medicaid for prison populations.
