Children’s Hospital drops Mississippi Medicaid

March 11, 2017, Daily Journal- Children’s Hospital of Alabama is no longer accepting insurance through Mississippi Medicaid, a representative for the hospital confirmed Friday. As a result, the hospital is not treating the more than 400,000 children insured through Medicaid in Mississippi. Birmingham-based Children’s said in a statement the hospital and Mississippi’s Division of Medicaid were not able to “successfully negotiate (a contract) with satisfactory terms.” “Children’s of Alabama regrets that we will no longer accept Mississippi Medicaid patients, for whom it has been our privilege to provide care,” said Adam Kelly, manager of corporate communications at Children’s of Alabama.
