Now is the time to update your information with the Louisiana Medicaid program or risk losing your coverage!  Expanded eligibility requirements during the COVID-19 public health emergency have ended. This means some people who receive Medicaid will no longer qualify for those benefits.  

When will this impact my coverage?

Some Medicaid members started losing their coverage effective July 1, 2023. To ensure your coverage does not lapse, please do the following:

Though some eligibility can be completed by using information from online databases, many Medicaid members will need to provide additional information regarding their eligibility. For the Medicaid department to be able to contact you for additional information, it is imperative that your cell phone number and email address are updated. The Louisiana Department of Health will allow individuals to submit requested information over the phone, via mail or email, online, and in-person. Even if you are eligible, members who do not respond to requests for additional information will be at risk of losing their coverage.

If you have any questions about eligibility or how the ending of continuous coverage for Medicaid may impact you, please call Access Health Louisiana at 1-866-530-6111. You can always make an appointment with a Medicaid Application Assistant at any of our community health center locations during regular business hours.
