I want to switch plans, but I’m not a new Medicaid member. Can I do that?

You can change your Healthy Louisiana plan after the first 90 days for certain reasons. These reasons might be that your plan changed the services you need, or you can’t get the kind of care you need.

You can only change plans by phone after the first 90 days. You’ll need to call Healthy Louisiana at 1-855-229-6848 (TTY: 1-855-526-3346) and ask for a transfer form.

I was told I can change plans during Open Enrollment. What is that?

Open Enrollment is a period of time held every year when you can switch plans. You’ll get a letter in the mail letting you know when Open Enrollment will be. The letter will also tell you how to switch health plans. If you don’t want to switch plans, you won’t need to do anything.
