American Jails Magazine, May/June
Halden Talley

Justice Principal Halden Tally's article, "A Constitutional Level of Healthcare," is now published in the May/June issue of American Jails Magazine. The article explores the obstacles correctional healthcare facilities face to comply to new legislation.

The Affordable Care Act (ACA) presents new challenges to all healthcare providers. However, for healthcare providers in detention and correctional facilities, this mandate involves a special application. They must provide this level of healthcare for inmate-patients even as they address funding issues and work in tandem with law enforcement, judicial, and correctional processes and requirements.
