Correctional Managed Health Care
Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) is a nationally recognized leader
in correctional health care, providing health coverage for more than 32,000 state
offenders in West Texas.
In 1989, TTUHSC began providing health services for offenders housed in Texas Department
of Criminal Justice correctional facilities.
Our high standard of service is evidenced by the fact that all State Correctional
facilities that receive health care services from TTUHSC are accredited by the American
Correctional Association (ACA).
The Texas correctional managed health care program represents a legislatively established
partnership among the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, Texas Tech University
Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston. The partnership is responsible
for providing comprehensive health care services to adult offenders incarcerated in
Texas state prisons.
