My inmate is on medication, is it true they charge, if so what if they have no money?

My son is in jail the doctors have put him on medication. My son says he owes money for the medication. is this correct? is medication provided or is there really a charge he must pay. how is he suppose to pay while locked up. If he cannot pay will he still be provided the medication while incarcerated?

Ask the inmate answer
The medication charge in jail is nominal, no more than $5.00 per prescription. Inmates that have not had money deposited in their commissary for 30 straight days are considered indigent. Indigent inmates are given the meds without charge.
