Datapoint: Is Mississippi the Next State to Expand Medicaid?

Mississippi could be the next state to expand Medicaid, according to a Sept. 12 report in Mississippi Today. Representative Jason White (R), who will likely become Speaker of the House for the 2024 legislative session, told the outlet that Medicaid expansion “will be on the table,” despite Gov. Tate Reeves’ (R) strong opposition. “I think we as Republicans have probably earned a little bit of the bad rap we get on health care in Mississippi,” White continued. “Part of that is that we haven’t had a full-blown airing or discussion of Medicaid expansion. We’ve just said, ‘No.’” The state currently serves 849,912 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 51.4% enrolled in managed care plans.
