Mississippi

Mississippi’s PCO and PCA have worked together for more than 23 years, routinely participating in and collaborating on health panels and coalitions. In a particularly successful partnership, the PCO and PCA recruited 128 primary care providers for CHCs and rural hospital as part of the Mississippi Access for Rural Care (MARC). MARC became a model program thanks to their joint leadership. Additionally, they also developed and implemented a state loan forgiveness program for primary care providers.
