Consumer Protection

MHAP worked for years to ensure the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010. Now our work has transitioned to ensuring consumers are informed about and exercise their new rights under the law. MHAP, through our consumer assistance program Health Help Mississippi, provides assistance with consumer grievances and appeals when necessary. MHAP also works with national partners to shape our state’s policy to provide more consumer protections as they navigate through this new health care landscape.
