Managed Care

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 Community Plan, MississippiCAN with Molina Healthcare, CHIP with Magnolia Health and CHIP with UnitedHealthcare Community Plan.

Coordinated Care Organizations

DOM has contracted with three coordinated care organizations (CCOs), Magnolia Health, UnitedHealthcare Community Plan and Molina Healthcare who are responsible for providing services to beneficiaries who participate in the MississippiCAN program. There are certain beneficiaries that will qualify for this program, both mandatory and optional beneficiary populations.
