Sheriff Helping Inmates Apply for Medical Coverage

Sheriff John Zaruba announced today that the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office is helping inmates apply for medical coverage. 

The DuPage County Jail has joined the growing number correctional facilities that are helping inmates apply for medical coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Since January, the jail has been enrolling inmates at no cost by utilizing the services of eligibility specialists from Aunt Martha’s Youth and Health Center. These specialists have completed 272 insurance applications. 

While the deadline for enrollment of the Affordable Care Act is today, the enrollment process for inmates will continue.
