My suggestion is that inmates provide their own Health Insurance. In this way, when they are in need of services they will receive whatever services that their plan provides -- just like everyone else in society who has not committed an illegal act. If the inmate cannot afford health care, they can be assigned something akin to Medicaid. The Bureau of Prisons could save millions of dollars on surgeries, hospital stays, treatment for chronic illnesses such as HIV, Hepatitis, etc.) and emergency care.
