Mississippi Hospitals Won't Oppose Provider Tax

The Mississippi Hospital Association won't oppose the renewal of a provider tax on hospitals in the state that is used to garner additional federal funds for the Medicaid program, according to a Hattiesburg American report.

The tax, which has been in place since 2009, would have expired in June without a renewal. MHA President and CEO Sam Cameron said the tax provides stability for Medicaid funding, according to the report.

The tax generates approximately $200 million annually, which is multiplied nearly three times by federal matching funds, according to the report.
