Learn about plan types
MS Medicaid, or MississippiCAN, is health insurance for people with low incomes. You might be able to get Medicaid in Mississippi if you’re pregnant, have children or live with a disability. In some cases, other adults may also qualify. Costs to you are low and based on your ability to pay. It’s important to know that Medicaid rules and coverage differ from state to state.
Dual Special Needs Plans (D-SNP)
Dual Special Needs Plans (also called dual health plans or D-SNPs for short) are for people who get both MississippiCAN (Medicaid) and Medicare. Dual plans cover doctor visits, hospital stays and prescription drugs. They offer more benefits and extras than Original Medicare. You’ll keep all your Mississippi Medicaid benefits MississippiCAN too.
