Default Co-Pay for Medical Visit

I read an article in Today's paper concerning the ADOC audit. The article stated the fee for a medical visit and transportation is illegal. Also, that the fees would be continued. It stated the state ADOC had collected 1 million dollars from these fees this year. How can this continue if it is illegal? What about inmates that do not have anyone to send money? Do they receive medical treatment?

Welcome to the Real-World-Of-Living-With-The-Alabama-DOC! They do, and always have and it seems always will do as they please, with little regard of anyone except themselves and how they feel things are, and are going to be! No one cares about the inmates, and the ones that do, has no power to do anything to help them. The ones that do not have anyone to send them money get the same poor care that the ones that has money does, if an inmate does not have any money when they go to the doctor for the co-pay and they recieve any later, it is deducted from what they get.

There was a small segment on ABC 33/40 news tonight. It said the same thing the paper did. That this is illegal, but it would continue.....
