The Department of Corrections is receiving $31 million more to provide health care to inmates, as well as nearly $1 million to hire 10 employees to monitor inmate health care matters. Inmate health care has been the subject of a years-long lawsuit that has found DOC and its private contractor have violated the rights of inmates by failing to provide them with adequate health care, in some cases leading to serious injuries and deaths. In addition to this funding, the budget requires DOC to report on inmate healthcare performance measures, provide copies of court-ordered reports to the legislature and include correctional officer and medical staff staffing levels in monthly expenditure reports.
