Mississippi consumer health advocates, providers, and other stakeholders have recently recognized the immediate need to collaborate to educate and enroll Mississippians in the new health insurance Marketplace. Beginning Oct. 1, Mississippi has an historic opportunity to offer affordable health coverage to more than 275,000 Mississippians through the Mississippi Health Insurance Marketplace. Representatives of these organizations understand and agree on the need for a statewide campaign to educate Mississippians about their new health insurance options. As a result, this coalition will coordinate resources under the brand "Cover Mississippi" in an effort to reduce the number of uninsured in Mississippi.
The Coalition is organized around a steering committee, working groups, and community partners. Coalition members will share learning and best practices, maximize resources, identify challenges and opportunities, and build an inclusive plan to insure Mississippians.
