Mississippi Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney said in an interview today that his state department and officials at the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) are working together to figure out how to best get an exchange approved in the state despite the governor’s resistance.

Chaney spoke with HHS officials Monday after Mississippi’s exchange approval was tabled due to the fracas between the commissioner and Republican Gov. Phil Bryant.
