  • An order for Home Incarceration (HIC) or Condition of Release (Bond) must be completed and given to
    MCDCHIP before enrollment can begin.

  • Payments are due at every office visit

How to Pay

Indigent inmates pay a $4.00 a day fee without a hookup fee.
Non indigent inmates pay a $10.00 fee with a $50.00 hookup fee.

AOC pretrial services will determine if the inmate is indigent or not.

  • If the defendant is more than 7 days behind on fees, this may be considered a violation of the conditions of MCDCHIP.
  • If a defendant is revoked for a violation of MCDCHIP rules, they will not be entitled to a refund. If the defendant owes a balance, they will still be required to pay the remaining debt.

    if their color has been selected. If the defendant's color is selected, they must report between 11:OOam
    and 1:OOpm
    to submit to a drug test.
  • FEES - $25.00 per drug test. Fees are due at time of testing; failure to submit payment will count as a
    failed screen.
  • The defendant may be called by MCDCHIP AT ANY TIME to report for a drug test. The defendant will be
    given two hours to report.
  • Failure to submit a drug test, refuses to take test, does not report, or fails to produce a urine sample, or

  • The defendant must have the doctors' office email proof of the appointment with the time and the date of
    the visit or the defendant must bring an excuse slip from the doctor to their next office visit to show the date
    of the appointment with the time of their arrival and departure.
