I didn’t get a letter. Can I still change my health plan?

Yes. Everyone on Medicaid can visit to change their health plan.

If you didn’t receive a letter, it probably means Medicaid doesn’t have your up-to-date address or email address. You can update your contact info at or by calling Louisiana Healthcare Connections at 1-866-595-8133 (TTY 711), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Do I need a reason to change my health plan?

No. You do not need a reason to change your health plan at this time. Anyone receiving Medicaid can change their health plan at After March 31, 2023, you can only change your health plan with a reason approved by the Louisiana Department of Health.

Does Louisiana Healthcare Connections have an adult dental benefit?

Yes! As an extra benefit, our adult members get up $500 in dental services each year starting January 1, 2023.

(If you saw a comparison chart that said we do not offer an adult dental benefit, it is not correct.)

Could being switched to a different health plan mean different doctors, specialists, and other providers?

Yes. A different health plan may mean different doctors and specialists. Having access to the doctors you need is important for your health. So, if you were switched to a health plan with a smaller provider network, there will be fewer doctors you can see.

Louisiana Healthcare Connections has the largest provider network of any Medicaid health plan. This gives you access to the most specialists, mental health providers, primary care providers, vision providers, obstetricians, and more.

If there’s a certain provider that’s important to you, you can use our Find a Provider tool to make sure they are in our network.

Has my Medicaid coverage been affected?

No. Being switched to a different health plan does not affect your Medicaid coverage. However, if you do not have Louisiana Healthcare Connections, you will miss out on our extra benefits and rewards.
