About Amerigroup

Amerigroup* was founded on the ideal that everyone deserves a medical "home" that goes beyond just providing access to care, but also includes the services and supports people need to live healthier lives. We started with hiring people who are passionate about making a difference and spent the last two decades building relationships with providers, advocates, and community and national organizations who share our commitment to addressing health disparities for low-income families and people with disabilities.

Together with our health plan affiliates, we serve:

8.8 million members in state-sponsored programs across 23 states.

Member Focused, Family Centered

Amerigroup is focused on achieving health and wellness for the entire family.

  • We listen, respect, and engage members to understand their culture, values, beliefs, and lifestyles so we can develop meaningful relationships.
  • We engage and support members and their families to set goals based on what is important to them, building on their strengths and creating opportunities for healthier futures.

Advancing Quality Care

Member focused, provider collaborative, data driven, and local—our commitment to quality informs everything we do. Our quality improvement programs achieve results, and we will do the same for health issues that are important to Mississippi.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. Amerigroup proudly holds multiple NCQA accreditations and distinctions as evidence of our commitment to quality.

Each one of our eligible Medicaid affiliates holds NCQA Health Plan Accreditation, evidence of our commitment to quality in member experience, clinical performance, and network management.

14 of our affiliated plans scored 3.5 or higher and four of those scored 4.0 or higher in the 2020 NCQA Health Plan Quality Ratings.

19 of our affiliates have earned Multicultural Health Care Distinction status from NCQA, a recognition of our commitment to providing culturally and linguistically appropriate services and reduction in health care disparities to our Medicaid members.

At the national level of Amerigroup's parent company, the Medicaid division holds:

  • NCQA Managed Behavioral Health Organization accreditation, an acknowledgment of the effectiveness of our integrated care model.
  • NCQA accreditation for nine Disease Management programs, a recognition of the quality supports and services we offer members who are living with a health condition.
