(BEDFORD) - The inmates at the Lawrence County Security Center will be covered with a new healthcare plan.

Advanced Correctional Health Care Account Representative Les Singleton explained to the Lawrence County Commissioners how the plan works.

Singleton says a physician will be on-site with two other doctors at an on-call basis. A nurse will be on-site as well and she will be trained in dental care.

Prescriptions are available through Advance, however, the board is considering using a local pharmacy to provide the needed drugs.

The contract was accepted and will begin in just a few days.
