Peter C. Schwartzkopf
- District 14
This bill makes changes to the Adult Correction Healthcare Review Committee by adding the chairpersons of the House and Senate Correction committees as ex-officio non-voting members. This bill also places this Committee within the Criminal Justice Council so the Committee has the administrative support it needs to effectuate its purpose. This bill also tasks the Committee with advising not only the Commissioner of the Department of Correction but also the Governor and the General Assembly on matters concerning inmate health-care services in our State’s correctional institutions. This bill makes clear that certain State agencies and contractors providing medical services to inmates must provide information requested by the Committee. This Committee is not a public body, and the bill emphasizes that Committee members must abide by federal and state laws regarding the privacy of protected health information and provides penalties for violations of the privacy of such information.
