From Cover Mississippi:
The findings show that a 27-Year-Old living in Jackson may pay out of pocket only $8 a month for a bronze-level premium that covers all preventive services, most primary care visits, and limits out of pocket costs that may result from an accident or severe illness.
The statewide bronze-level premium average for the same age group is $75 a month. That means for the first time many young Mississippians will be able to afford a quality health plan for less than the costs of their smartphone bill.Very exciting news for Mississippians - especially young people who are not getting the preventative care they need now to limit or even eliminate catastrophic issues later in life.
