Inmates to be charged for medical care in Cass County

Email

WALKER — Cass County has been paying about $100,000 per year for jail inmate medical care.

That bill should be lower this year. The county board voted Tuesday to begin charging inmates for their medical care.

Those who have insurance will be expected to use their own insurance. Those who do not will pay a co-pay toward what the county pays for their medical services. The rate is in line with amounts Crow Wing County has been charging inmates under its jurisdiction.
