Mississippi’s largest health insurance provider is finally covering patients in-network at the state’s largest medical complex again after the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Mississippi announced an agreement. Since last spring, thousands of non-emergency patients have not been able to get affordable care at UMMC due to an ongoing dispute with BCBS. “Effective December 15, 2022, all UMMC facilities, physicians and other individual Professional Providers are fully participating Network Providers for all Blue Cross commercial health plans, including the Federal Employee Plan and Blue Cross and Blue Shield Plans from other states,” says Friday’s joint statement. “Blue Cross and UMMC remain focused on their missions of serving Mississippians’ health care needs.”
