Mississippi Medicaid to remove all Medicaid copayments effective May 1, 2023

Attention Providers:

Effective May 1, 2023, the Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) is eliminating all Medicaid copayments for pharmacy and health care services.

DOM plans to submit MS State Plan Amendment (SPA) 23-0011 to allow the agency to remove copays from Medicaid services. While DOM will continue to pay providers for their services, providers will no longer be able to collect copays from beneficiaries beginning Monday, May 1, 2023.

Pharmacy point-of-sale paid claims will reflect a $0.00 amount in the copayment field. This change will apply to both fee-for-service and MississippiCAN claims.
