Medicaid Gets a New Pharmacy Benefit Manager This Fall

Louisiana Medicaid is switching to Magellan Medicaid Administration to manage pharmacy benefits for all Medicaid health plans. This means Magellan will handle authorizations, claims and prescription coverage for all Medicaid health plan members.

If you are in a Medicaid health plan, you should know:

  • Your pharmacy benefits and co-pays are not changing. 
  • Any prescriptions or approvals you already have are not changing.
  • Your health plan sent you a letter and new ID card in the mail. The letter said that Magellan would be your new pharmacy benefit manager on October 28, 2023. That start date has been moved to October 28, 2023.
  • You can use your new health plan ID card to fill your prescriptions beginning October 28, 2023.
  • Most pharmacies will be in Magellan’s network. If your current pharmacy is not, Magellan will contact you by mail. 

Beginning October 23, 2023, you can contact Magellan’s 24/7 Help Desk with questions about the transition. Effective, Saturday, October 28, 2023, the help desk will be available to assist with inquiries relating to pharmacy and or prescription questions. You can call 1-800-424-1664 (TTY: 711) or visit www.lamcopbmpharmacy.com.
