NorCo Council Approves $36M Contract For Medical Services at Jail

Though Northampton County Council member John Cusick moved a proposed $36 million contract with Primecare for medical services to the jail over a period of up to 10 years when it was in committee, he was the sole No vote when Council voted on it last night. The contract was approved 7-1, with Council member Peg Ferraro being absent. Cusick is bothered by the length of the contract.

"If you can get stability in health care that the county can count on ..., with due respect John, I'm kind of seeing it from the other side," retorted Council member Kevin Lott.

Six Council members agreed with Lott.

Does this include dental because I have to get some teeth pulled and I was wondering if I commit a M1 if I would be covered?
