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 job years. Under this proposal, hospital investments and member payments fund the premiums with no state funding required. 
We would love to come and talk to your civic, community, or church group about MississippiCares. To schedule a speaker, contact Shawn Rossi at 601.368.3237 or
