Welcome to the Subrogation website for the Mississippi Division of Medicaid (DOM) operated by Health Management Systems, Inc. (HMS). HMS has contracted with DOM to operate the Subrogation Unit.
The Subrogation Unit is responsible for enforcing DOM’s statutory right to recovery in subrogation claims, and for ensuring the State receives its reimbursement. The Subrogation Unit’s purpose is to recover the cost of medical expenditures from liable third parties when beneficiaries are involved in a personal injury action. These suits may be related to an auto accident, medical malpractice claim, general liability, workers’ compensation, mass torts, or any other tort claim where a settlement has been reached or a judgment has been awarded.
To notify DOM of an action, please fax your standard letter of representation to our office at 1-844-388-0653. The Subrogation Unit will contact you with the subrogation amount to help you settle your claim. If you require a breakdown of the bills paid by DOM, please include a signed medical authorization.
DOM has a statutory right to recovery. As a condition of eligibility, beneficiaries assign their rights to DOM for any third party payments.
