Mississippi Medicaid?

by Elizabeth W. on Friday, March 8, 2013

This week, the last bill alive (Senate Bill 2207) that would re-authorize the state's Medicaid program died. However, a House Medicaid hearing is scheduled for Monday, March 11th at 1:00 pm at the State Capitol.  

The American Heart Association and other organizations are working to improve health care coverage for low-income families and individuals. This is critically important to our efforts in making Mississippi healthier through Medicaid. Medicaid is an important lifeline for low-income patients to receive the care that they so desperately need. Moreover, increased coverage is the gateway to improving public health and reducing the chronic disease burden in Mississippi. 

We are looking for heart disease and stroke patients who are not covered by Medicaid or do not have insurance.  If you know of anyone that  fits into either of these categories, please have them reach out to us at
