Inmate Medical Cost Management Program
Endorsed by the
A Program Designed for Sheriffs and Counties
Managed by Hunt Insurance Group and administered by Prime Health Services (PHS), the Inmate Medical Cost Management Program (IMCMP) was established to reduce off-site inmate medical costs. This program is an enhancement to onsite medical care and does not carry any enrollment fee. Sheriffs or county-run jails only pay for the service if savings are achieved. A portion of the savings goes to pay for the negotiation and intense review of medical bills for offsite inmate medical care.
Participants can expect savings on average of 35-40%, or more on off-site medical bills, whether that be dental offices, optical offices, chiropractors, x-ray facilities, or hospital services.
To understand how significant the savings can be, one Florida Sheriff's Office asked us to review a bill that was several years old. After scrubbing the bill, the Sheriff received a 59% reduction in the total billed amount.
In another instance, the we were able to negotiate a 51% reduction on a bill for an inmate who was treated at an out-of-county trauma center.
The IMCMP provides access to a nation-wide network of directly contracted medical providers. This nationwide corrections network includes 597,216 providers, 2,971 hospitals, and 126,254 facilities.
PHS applies their expertise at direct contracting, and experience in the workers' compensation and group health industries to assist our Sheriffs and county-run jails save money on inmate medical care.

How It Works
There are two ways to benefit from the program. The first method is to use the savings card anytime an inmate has to go offsite for medical care. The second way is when the care has already been delivered. When you enter into an agreement for this Program, we can take the outstanding bills and scrub them to secure a reduced rate.
The IMCMP can work alongside any contracts or agreements you have already established to enhance your savings. Tie these savings back to the Catastrophic Inmate Medical Insurance (CIMI) and the county jails may see a reduction in upfront costs on the claim itself as well as on the excess premiums for high cost claims.
