Changing your health plan

Your health plan

When you apply for Healthy Louisiana, you will choose a health plan and may choose a PCP, for each family member who has Medicaid or LaCHIP. Your health plan will also provide any mental health and substance use treatment services you or your family members need.

If you do not choose a plan, Healthy Louisiana will choose one for you. Healthy Louisiana will send you a confirmation letter in the mail. It will tell you the health plan you are in.
