WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Bennie Thompson has announced that he will host Dr. Renard Murray, Regional Administrator for the CMS Atlanta Regional Office, on July 2, in Mississippi. Dr. Murray will discuss Affordable Care exchange implementation and how it will affect Mississippi hospital administrators, physicians, businesses, and other stakeholders.

“I want Mississippi to succeed, and I am deeply committed to enhancing the healthcare system of our state. There are over half a million uninsured citizens in our state. I want Mississippi to have every advantage in developing an effective, accessible healthcare system. I am tired of statistics that have Mississippi coming in last when it comes to healthcare. I intend to change the picture of health in our state, and this discussion is another step in that direction,” said Thompson.

Beginning Oct. 1, consumers in all states will be able to choose new, affordable health insurance coverage through a new Health Insurance Marketplace through the Affordable Care Act. Mississippi will participate in a Federally- facilitated Marketplace.
