A Review of Medical Services at the SC Department of Corrections
March 2000


The President Pro Tempore of the Senate requested that we conduct a review of medical services provided to inmates at the South Carolina Department of Corrections (SCDC). The requester was concerned about the costs and quality of medical services at the department. Although our review focused on contracts between SCDC and Correctional Medical Services (CMS), a private provider, we also reviewed several aspects of medical services provided by SCDC employees. We did not review other procurements or other activities of the Department of Corrections.
