Health care you can count on
Ready. Set. Renew.
It may be time to renew your health benefits. We are here to help. We created this short video to show you how.
Keep in mind, if you don’t renew before the deadline, you may have a gap in health coverage. Take steps now to protect yourself and your family.
No longer qualify for Medicaid? We can connect you to a plan that’s right for you.
Keep your Medicaid information up to date to maintain coverage
Healthy Louisiana members need to make sure their information stays current to ensure their Medicaid coverage. You can make changes to your address and your financial and employment information online at https://mymedicaid.la.gov/. You will need to create an account to make changes.
If you get a letter from Medicaid asking for more information or asking you to verify your income, be sure to respond as soon as possible. If you do not, your case may be closed and you may lose your Medicaid coverage, even if you are still eligible.
With Medicaid and LaCHIP, you and your family can access doctors, medicine, and services to get and stay healthy.
Mental Health & Substance Use Services
Some members only get mental health and substance use services through Healthy Blue. We provide access to doctors, providers, and services to help you with your emotional and mental health.
Children with disabilities, who may not qualify for Medicaid, may be eligible for a new program created by the Louisiana Department of Health (LDH).
Be aware of scams and fraud during Medicaid renewals. There is no cost to complete a Medicaid renewal and if we reach out to you about renewing your coverage, we will never ask for money.
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.
