Health care you can count on
New to Healthy Blue?
You may have received a letter from Healthy Louisiana notifying you that you have been reassigned/transferred to Healthy Blue. Or, you may have received a new member welcome packet and member ID card from us. Either way, welcome to Healthy Blue.
We’re glad to be your partner in care, and we’re here to help you every step of the way. If you had services pre-authorized by your previous health plan or an individualized care plan in place, we are working with them to make sure you continue to receive those services without any interruption. It’s important to us that you have the care you need to be healthy.
Feel free to contact us at 844-521-6941 (TTY 711) Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Again, welcome to Healthy Blue.
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.

Children’s Vision Services
Healthy Blue has discovered an error in processing children’s vision benefits (ages birth to 20 years) in January 2023. Immediate action was taken and the error has been corrected.
If you or your child:
- Were told you were not covered for a vision benefit or service
- Had to pay for the visit
- Chose not to have the service at that time
You can now go back to your vision provider and receive the service or receive a refund for out-of-pocket payments. Or you can reach out to Healthy Blue Member Services at 844-521-6941 (TTY 711) as soon as possible. You can reach us Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
As always, we are happy to be your partner in care.
