Many inmates have private insurance which should be billed for all medical services. We should be able to restrict commissary purchases for all diabetics and hypertensives who exhibit self destructive behavior. We chase their blood pressures and blood sugars as they are not held accountable for their poorv health choices. As a result we spend literally millions of dollars annually unecessarily for their healthcare. Each medical encounter should incur a copay as does mine with Federal health insurance. Inmates ONLY pay for some services.
