It depends on the unit, but usually it's $3 for the visit and $3 for each perscription. If it's an on-going condition, they're only supposed to charge once. Hope that helps.

My son told me that when he was in Middleton, (upon entering prison for first time), they sent him by ambulance to the hospital for some kind of heart thing, and that they took money out of his trust fund for it. I have read the inmate handbook and it doesn't say anything about that.
