Our Partners in Mississippi
We've worked with the following partners in this state to expand access to reproductive health care.
Converge: Partners in Access is working to increase access to LARC at federally qualified health centers (FQHCs), community-based organizations that provide care to all, regardless of their ability to pay. To take advantage of a recently passed Medicaid State Plan Amendment improving reimbursement rates for LARCs, Converge is forming and convening a statewide advisory group to educate FQHCs, including by creating a toolkit on how to overcome potential logistical and systems barriers. Converge is also partnering closely with reproductive justice leaders in the state to ensure that patient autonomy and access to the full range of contraceptive care, including LARC removal, are centered in their work.
