Here are some plan features and benefits:

  • Blue Connect members have access to Ochsner Health Network (OHN) and other participating providers. Search the provider directory for the most up-to-date list of participating providers.

  • Plan is available to residents in the parishes listed above. While the Blue Connect product is offered only in the New Orleans, Lafayette and Shreveport areas, Blue Connect members may also access Blue Connect network providers located in other parishes.

  • You get a team of health care doctors, nurses and hospitals who work together to help you get the right care in the right place.

  • Staying in-network is very important! As long as you get care within your Blue Connect network, you will always pay less than if you get care outside of the network. You must pick a primary care doctor in the Blue Connect network.

*Blue Connect plans are products of HMO Louisiana, Inc., a subsidiary of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana. Both companies are independent licensees of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association. Ochsner Health Network is an independent company that offers health services to members of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana and its subsidiaries.
