I wrote about the county’s contract with PrimeCare Medical Inc., a company that provides medical services to inmates.
York County Commissioner Doug Hoke said PrimeCare is responsible for costs up to a certain threshold. He didn’t know what that threshold was.
Below, a copy of the agreement.
And here’s what one passage has to say about limitations on catastrophic liability:
“Company shall be liable only up to the amount of $18,000.00 for illness or injury per single inmate/patient and $50,000.00 in the aggregate for any contagious illness or injury affecting more than one (1) inmate/patient arising from the same occurrence. These limits shall be applicable for 365 days following incurring of initial costs.”
