The Mississippi Municipal League is sponsoring a unique health care partnership to bring affordable health insurance and access to better health care for Mississippi municipalities and their communities, particularly smaller communities in underserved areas of the State.
The new program has three parts: First, affordable health insurance through Ambetter from Magnolia Health. Second, access to superior, community-based health care through Vigilant Health.
Third, improved access to coverage and care through Mississippi Communities Health Advisers, a company created as a dedicated member services organization for those who buy Ambetter policies through the program sponsored by MML for its members and their communities.
A Three-Part Solution for Better Health
Each component is designed to address specific challenges in bringing good health care to Mississippi communities.
Affordable Health Insurance: Ambetter from Magnolia Health
One of the biggest hurdles people face when it comes to health care is the cost. Ambetter from Magnolia Health offers comprehensive major medical insurance at prices that are affordable for everyone. Because it meets the strict criteria required to be sold on the federal Health Insurance Marketplace, Ambetter provides subsidies to many individuals based on family income. These subsidies can substantially reduce the costs of both premiums and out-of-pocket costs. Over 90% of Ambetter members in Mississippi benefit from these subsidies, transforming health insurance into an attainable reality. Imagine obtaining exceptional coverage for something as vital as health care, at a fraction of the cost.
Elevating the Quality of Health Care: Vigilant Health
Ambetter and the MML are partnering with Vigilant Health to make its nationally recognized community-based clinics and health care services available to Ambetter policy holders with no charge of any kind to Ambetter members. Every individual who purchases Ambetter policies will have access to Vigilant Health clinics and services statewide with no out-of-pocket costs, no waits for care, and no limits on visits. Vigilant clinics are led by community physicians and work closely with community organizations. . Vigilant produces the same superior results in every demographic and type of market, including rural and under-served communities.
