Substance Fees / Medical Co-Pay
The State Legislature has found that there is an urgent need to alleviate the increasing financial burdens on local subdivisions of the state caused by the expenses of incarcerating prisoners. Florida State Statue allows for the collections of all or a fair portion of daily subsistence and reimbursement for expenses incurred in providing medical care, treatment, hospitalization or transportation from the inmate receiving the service. All inmates shall receive the same level of care regardless of their ability to pay.
In an attempt to defray cost, The Martin County Sheriff's Office Corrections Department has initiated a Subsistence Fee Program and Medical Co-Pay Program.
