Datapoint: Is Medicaid Expansion Coming to Mississippi?

Mississippi lawmakers last week introduced a bill that would bring Medicaid expansion to the state with one major caveat — work requirements. The effort could bring Medicaid coverage to an estimated 250,000 people, provided they have a job, are seeking employment or pay a yet-undetermined premium for care. Governor Tate Reeves (R) strongly opposes Medicaid expansion, however, so the bill’s future is unclear. Mississippi currently serves 788,887 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 58% enrolled in managed care plans.
