Health care you can count on
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://sspweb.lameds.ldh.la.gov/selfservice/.You will need to create an account to make changes.
Medicaid is now checking eligibility more than once a year, so it is important that your information and your address is current.
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.

We now offer Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) services for members 21 and under.
