The Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) has implemented a managed care program called Mississippi Coordinated Access Network (MississippiCAN). MississippiCAN is designed to get a better return on Mississippi’s health care investment by improving the health and well-being of Medicaid beneficiaries. MississippiCAN is a statewide coordinated care program designed to meet the following goals:
- improve beneficiary access to needed medical services,
- improve quality of care, and
- improve program efficiencies as well as cost predictability.
It is important to note Mississippi Medicaid health benefits encompasses multiple programs administered by DOM: Medicaid, MississippiCAN and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP). The agency encourages all providers to enroll in Medicaid, MississippiCAN with Magnolia Health, MississippiCAN with UnitedHealthcare, CHIP with Magnolia Health and CHIP with UnitedHealthcare.
