If you don't choose a health plan or dental plan

If you do not choose a health or dental plan, Healthy Louisiana will choose for you. When you apply for Medicaid or LaCHIP, we will ask you to choose a health plan and a dental plan. We will enroll you in the health plan and dental plan you choose. You know your health and dental care needs best, so it’s better if you choose your health plan and dental plan.

Healthy Louisiana will send you a confirmation letter in the mail. It will tell you the health plan and dental plan you are in. You can change health or dental plans if you wish. For questions, call Healthy Louisiana at 1-855-229-6848 (TTY: 1-855-526-3346). We can help!

Some members do not have to join a health plan

Most people in Medicaid and LaCHIP must join a health plan. But you may not need to join a health plan if you are a CHISHOLM member or a member of certain other groups. For questions, call Healthy Louisiana at 1-855-229-6848 (TTY: 1-855-526-3346).
