Miss. Counties Where New Health Coverage Planned

Posted: Updated:
Jackson -

So far, the Mississippi Department of Insurance says two companies have signed up to offer health insurance on the federally-subsidized marketplace, where enrollment is supposed to begin Oct. 1 and coverage is supposed to begin Jan. 1. One company, Magnolia Health Plan, would offer products in 46 counties. Another, Humana, would offer it in four counties, all of which also would be covered by Magnolia Health Plan. Residents in 36 counties would have no option to buy insurance on the marketplace, unless other companies join the exchange or these two companies change their plans. Here are the counties where the companies plan to offer coverage:
    
___
    
Magnolia and Humana: DeSoto, Hinds, Madison, Rankin.
    
___
    
Magnolia only: Benton, Calhoun, Chickasaw, Claiborne, Clarke, Clay, Coahoma, Copiah, Forrest, George, Greene, Harrison, Issaquena, Itawamba, Jackson, Jasper, Kemper, Lafayette, Lamar, Lauderdale, Lee, Lowndes, Marshall, Monroe, Neshoba, Newton, Noxubee, Oktibbeha, Panola, Perry, Pontotoc, Prentiss, Quitman, Simpson, Stone, Tate, Tippah, Tunica, Union, Warren, Webster, Yazoo.
