Getting a Prescription Filled Just After Release
People who have been on prescription medication during incarceration can obtain a two-week supply of that medication at no cost by going to the Rite Aid Pharmacy at 1324 N. State Street in Provo (801-374-2015) within 48 hours of release. The pharmacy is open every day, including Sundays and holidays, from 8 am to midnight.

Health Insurance
Note: Beginning in 2014, the Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires insurance companies to cover mental health and substance addiction treatment as part of its 10 essential health benefit categories.

  • To purchase private insurance through Utah’s Health Insurance Marketplace, visit healthcare.gov or call 855-850-2834. Depending on your income, you may qualify for a subsidy to help cover the cost. To get help applying for insurance, visit takecareutah.org.
  • For information about Medicaid or PCN (Primary Care Network), click here, here, or go to your nearest Department of Workforce Services office.
  • If you have low income and do not have insurance, contact Community Health Connect (591 S. State St., Provo, 801-818-3015) to see if they can help you get the medical and/or dental care you need.
