2. Breaking the Cycle of Crime 95% of all inmates will leave prison 650,000 released nationally every year MI - 50,000 inmates living in 42 facilities MI spends $2 billion annually – one of 4 states that spend more on corrections than on higher education 12,000 are paroled annually Half will commit new crimes or violate parole rules In MI 6,000 return to prison annually at a cost of more than $180 million

3. Breaking the Cycle of Crime In Michigan prior to MPRI: Inmates left prison with a $75 bus ticket 2-week voucher for a cheap hotel Many lack social security card, birth certificate or a state ID No help with substance abuse or mental health issues Parole officers working with 60-80 offenders did not have time to help. 48% of parolees returned to prison

4. What is MPRI? The Mission of MPRI …is to significantly reduce crime and enhance public safety by implementing a seamless system of services for offenders from the time of their entry to prison through their transition, community reintegration and aftercare in their communities. Michigan Department of Corrections

5. MPRI History Started in 2005 with 8 pilot counties Additional counties (including Muskegon) added in 2007 Went statewide 2008 Initial funding $12 million Fy10 $50 million

6. Michigan Re-entry 18 County re-entry collaborations $30 M appropriation from State for FY-09 Increases to over $50 million in FY-10 Contracts are managed locally – county level

12. Using Local Health Navigation – Muskegon’s Approach

13. Background MDOC Michigan Prison System Health Care $330 million a year for inmate health care (based on a projected number of 48,000 inmates) Annual health cost per prisoner of $6,600 4,000 prisoners estimated to have chronic diseases 524 estimated to be medically fragile

14. Why Medical Navigation? 90% of parolees return to community as uninsured without medical home; No medical records returned with parolee; Pharmaceutical support for chronic disease terminated after 30-days Parolees were unaware of medical safety net support structure Significant level of imbedded chronic disease Job retention could be affected
