United for Mississippi

We are honored to partner with the State of Mississippi to provide Medicaid coverage to MississippiCan and Mississippi Children's Health Insurance Plan members in all 82 counties statewide. We work with compassion and integrity and strive to deliver high-quality equitable care to improve population health and are committed to caring for Mississippians. 

Community & State is the business segment of UnitedHealthcare that provides health care coverage for beneficiaries of Medicaid and other government health care programs. These health plans operate locally as the UnitedHealthcare Community Plan.

In Mississippi, our team strives to help people live healthier lives and help the health care system work better for everyone. We are guided by our commitments to Integrity, Compassion, Relationships, Innovation and Performance.

Meeting members where they are relies on a strong understanding of their communities, gained through listening and hands-on collaboration. Our established local presence enables our day-to-day operations to reflect the unique needs of the individuals that we have the privilege to serve. We are invested in the health and success of our communities, from Southaven and Tupelo to Hattiesburg and Gulfport.

Thank you,
J. Michael Parnell, PhD, RN, FACHE
CEO UnitedHealthcare Community Plan of Mississippi
