Datapoint: Mississippi’s Latest Medicaid Expansion Effort Fails

Mississippi lawmakers on May 2 failed to send a final Medicaid expansion proposal to the state’s House and Senate after previously reaching an agreement April 29, according to a report in the Associated Press. Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann (R) told members of the press that revisiting Medicaid expansion will be a top priority in 2025. The original measure would have included a 25-hour-per-week work requirement. The state currently serves 763,997 Medicaid beneficiaries, with 63.5% enrolled in managed care plans. The New York Times estimated that an additional 200,000 people would become eligible for Medicaid under expansion.
