About the Medicaid Coordinated Care Procurement
This year marks ten years since the inception of the Mississippi Division of Medicaid’s (DOM) coordinated care program, MississippiCAN. The program began in 2011 with only about 54,500 members enrolled. With additional categories of eligibility rolled into MississippiCAN over the years, the program currently covers more than 480,000 Medicaid members.
Now MississippiCAN is poised to enter a brand-new era as the procurement process for the round of contracts begins this month. With a 10-year foundation, DOM has had the opportunity to build an infrastructure for delivery of services, review data, conduct analyses of the coordinated care organization (CCO) framework, and chart a course for DOM and contracted CCOs to deliver the best possible services to Mississippi’s Medicaid population.
