Mississippi has so far rejected Medicaid expansion, but several candidates in the governor’s race, including two Republicans, have said they support some form of expansion. Republicans have cited Arkansas’s innovative approach to Medicaid expansion as a potential model to follow, so the Tupelo-based Daily Journal takes a look at the program, with comments from ACHI President and CEO Dr. Joe Thompson.

The story also looks at Medicaid expansion in another of Mississippi’s neighboring states, Louisiana.
