Exploring Affordable Health Coverage in Mississippi
When looking for cheap health insurance in Mississippi, the first thing you should understand is that policies with the lowest monthly payments (your insurance Premium) might not be your best option.
The REAL price of health coverage depends on many variables. Deductibles and co-pays increase costs, while discounts like premium tax relief and a state insurance subsidy can LOWER your medical expenses. A premium might look high at first, but the total amount you spend on medical services could be much lower!
For those shopping for Medicare add-ons, Mississippi has many options. In the USA as a whole, around 18% of the population are enrolled in Medicare. Whilst Mississippi has almost 20% enrollment in Medicare, historically only about 16% of those are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans. Medicare Advantage and Medicare supplemental plans could save you a LOT of money.
The Coronavirus Pandemic, COVID-19 Testing, and the FFCRA
COVID-19 is the hot topic health insurance issue in Mississippi. If you lose your health insurance due to COVID-19 or your employer closed because of the Coronavirus, testing is available atat no charge. The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) passed in March 2020, ensures that everyone can receive COVID-19 testing.

10 Core Health Services Mandated for all ACA Compliant Plans
Before the Affordable Care Act became Federal law, insurers could refuse to cover various health benefits, resulting in overwhelming debt to many people. The ACA fixed those loopholes and required all qualifying plans to carry these coverages (in Mississippi and all states):
- Emergency services
- Prescription drugs
- Ambulatory patient services (Hospital services that don’t require an overnight stay)
- Laboratory services
- Maternity and newborn care
- Pediatric services (for children), including dental and vision care
- Mental health and substance abuse services
- Preventive and wellness services, including chronic disease
- Rehabilitative/habilitative services and devices
Mississippi uses a Federally facilitated health insurance exchange. This Exchange does NOT regulate short term health insurance plans. While short term plans have their usefulness, they are NOT bound by the Affordable Care Act mandates and are NOT eligible for premium tax relief.
Mississippi is also a party to the Texas-led attempt to invalidate the ACA. The case is currently before the courts and any ruling probably will not affect your 2021 the health insurance plans.
