YLC Joins Effort to Protect Medicaid for Youth in the JJ System

January 20, 2010

YLC has joined other state and national organizations to urge House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to include in final health care legislation a provision in the House-passed bill (H.R. 3962, §1729) requiring states to suspend—rather than terminate—Medicaid benefits for youth in juvenile facilities. This issue arises out of YLC work on Improving Access to Health Care Services for Youth in the Juvenile Justice System.
