A good bill by Rep. Brad Daw (R-Orem) will be heard in the House Health and Human Services Standing Committee today at 2p! HB 38 Substance Use and Health Care Amendments ensures that inmates with a behavioral health issue (mental health or substance use) get put on Medicaid 30 days prior to release to ensure continued care post-release. The bill is an important way to reduce recidivism, improve outcomes and reduce behavioral health costs.
TAKE ACTION NOW: Please send a quick email to legislators on the committee NOW (before 2p!) to ask them to pass this good bill!
