Changing your Primary Care Provider (PCP)

Main Content

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. 

You will also choose a Primary Care Provider (PCP) in your health plan. Your PCP is the doctor, nurse practitioner, or clinic that gives you care. Your PCP will get to know you and your health care needs. The PCP will give you most of your care, keep your records, and send you to specialists when you need them. 

Changing PCPs

You can change your PCP if you want to. To change PCPs, call your health plan. Learn more about contacting your health plan here.
