Inmate Medical Cost Containment

Details on the Inmate Medical Cost Containment Program can be downloaded here.

The Mississippi Association of Supervisors (MAS) Board of Directors recently approved the implementation of a new member service, the Inmate Medical Cost Containment Program. This new MAS program is an effort to assist counties in saving money by helping to implement House Bill 1111 which was passed in 2010 by the Mississippi Legislature. The Bill reads in part "..medical care service providers will be paid...an amount no greater than the reimbursement rate applicable based on the Mississippi Medicaid reimbursement rate. The Board of Supervisors of any county shall not be liable for any cost...that exceeds the Mississippi Medicaid reimbursement rate."
