If you’re incarcerated you can use the Marketplace to apply for Medicaid coverage in your state. Medicaid won’t pay for your medical care while you’re in prison or jail. But if you enroll in Medicaid while you’re incarcerated you may be able to get needed care more quickly after you’re released.

SO, the short answer is YES, but becasue you're getting care there (for whatever that's worth) at this point ( legisltion IS constantly in flux) they won't pay while you're there (UNLESS If you’re in jail or prison but haven’t been convicted of a crime, and are incarcerated pending disposition of charges)....But if you enroll in Medicaid while you’re incarcerated you may be able to get needed care more quickly after you’re released.
