What Are We All About? Whether it’s online or in person, the Get Covered Mississippi! team wants to have a conversation with you. By arming you with the facts, we want you to feel confident when it comes time to make the best health and wellness choices for you and your family.
Why Are We Working with Mississippi’s Federally Qualified Community Health Centers (FQCHC)? Since some Mississippians applying for coverage might not qualify for a subsidy and/or Mississippi’s Medicaid program, we have been working with our state’s FQCHCs to help our fellow citizens find a medical home. These centers offer services on a sliding fee scale based on income. We continue to make referrals to FQCHCs.
