Open Enrollment for Louisiana Medicaid

The open enrollment period will begin Friday, June 30, and will close Wednesday, Aug. 30, with enrollment changes becoming effective Oct. 1, 2017. Letters containing information on this process will be mailed to all consumers that are included in this open enrollment period. You can call Healthy Louisiana toll-free at 1-855-229-6848 or visit to make a choice or change plans.

If you are receiving services and want to keep your current Healthy Louisiana Plan, you don’t need to do anything. You will continue to get your health care and your specialized behavioral health services from your current plan. You will stay with your Healthy Louisiana Plan for another year, as long as you are still qualified for Medicaid. If you want to change your current managed health care plan to another—now is the time to do so.

If you have moved, had a change in household size, a change in household income, or some other life change, you should contact the Medicaid office and report that change.  Disruptions in your Medicaid eligibility can lead to unnecessary medical expenses. Also, you may qualify for other financial assistance if you are no longer eligible for Medicaid.
