The Affordable Care Act (ACA) will provide security to Mississippi families. While the law will expand coverage to 500,000 Mississippians, it will also provide new rights to families and individuals who are currently insured.
Today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for Mississippi families. More than 500,000 adults and 100,000 children in Mississippi will benefit from the increased options for health insurance coverage and will help to protect working families and small business owners from unknown catastrophic health care costs by providing affordable health insurance options.
State Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney sees one particular component of the Affordable Care Act - the health insurance exchange, an online insurance marketplace on comparable rates and provisions - as a crucial tool to broaden health care of Mississippians.
While leaders in Washington say the U.S. Supreme Court’s highly anticipated ruling on health care won’t affect their plans, local experts are preparing for the decision’s possible effects on Mississippi.
