Health Insurance Options And Low Prison Incarceration On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, West Virginia’s prison system has been in the news lately with deaths and staffing problems. A new report from the Prison Policy Initiative shows that the number of people incarcerated in the state is on the low end nationally. News Director Eric Douglas spoke with Wanda Bertram, the group’s communication strategist, about the report.

Also, in this show, since the end of the Public Health Emergency and the unrolling of Medicaid, health insurance workers are already seeing an uptick in inquiries. Emily Rice has more.
