MississippiCares is the Mississippi Hospital Association’s proposed public-private partnership between the state, the federal government, and Mississippi hospitals to create better and more appropriate access to healthcare for non-disabled adults - many of whom are working hard to provide for their families. Under a special Medicaid waiver request, Mississippi hospitals would be willing to make an additional investment in the premiums needed to fund insurance coverage through a hospital-owned provider-sponsored health plan. 
The Perryman Group estimates that this plan will pump more than $73 billion over 10 years into Mississippi’s economy and create almost 400,000 jobs. Under this proposal, hospital investments and member payments fund the premiums with no state funding required.
