Are You Losing Your Medicaid Coverage?
For the first time since 2020, the State of Louisiana is completing Medicaid redeterminations which will make sure everyone enrolled in Louisiana Medicaid meets income, residence and other eligibility requirements. If you have Medicaid benefits now, your coverage may end soon.

Don't panic! You have options.

You have affordable healthcare coverage options. You can speak to a licensed insurance agent who can help you understand your options free of charge.

Act now to avoid losing your health coverage

It will take a year to mail all renewal letters, so watch your mail box for letters from Louisiana Medicaid and keep your contact information current. You can update your contact information with Louisiana Medicaid online.

If you do not reply to renewal letters or requests for information, you risk losing your coverage, even if you are eligible.

If you did not receive a pink letter from Medicaid or the Louisiana Department of Health by April 1, 2023, please contact Medicaid right away. It means they do not have your current contact information on file.
