JACKSON — UnitedHealthcare by AmeriChoice has been selected by Mississippi’s State and School Employees Health Insurance Management Board to be the state’s partner in its Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
When the new policy begins in Jan. 2010, UnitedHealthcare will be the exclusive health plan for approximately 65,000 children throughout Mississippi who are enrolled in CHIP.
“Particularly in these challenging times, we are keenly aware of the responsibilities that come in helping provide access to quality care statewide for the children of Mississippi,” said Rick Jelinek, CEO of AmeriChoice, the state and public programs business of UnitedHealth Group. “We look forward to bringing our substantial resources and experience to the critical mission of improving the health status of Mississippi’s CHIP beneficiaries.”
